Cool way to be a part of space!

Send Your Name to Mars

One of our readers sent this in. Now it’s not a sample, but it’s pretty cool especially if you have a child. Click here and if you fill out the form, your name will be included on a microchip on the Mars Science Laboratory rover heading to Mars in 2011! They’ll even let you print a certificate on the next screen.

Thanks Jessica
