WASHINGTON (FOX 5 Atlanta) - If you want to send your name to Mars, now is your chance.
NASA is taking names from now until the end of September.
Space fans can register onliine to be added onto a chip sent up into space on the Mars 2020 rover.
Each person will get a souvenir boarding pass and the opportunity to say their name is among the stars.
"As we get ready to launch this historic Mars mission, we want everyone to share in this journey of exploration," said Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. "It’s an exciting time for NASA, as we embark on this voyage to answer profound questions about our neighboring planet, and even the origins of life itself.”
The rover is scheduled to land on the red planet in February of 2021, carrying small microchips with millions of names etched on.
