We know we are
In case you’re already on your last straw with this planet (who isn’t?), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is now giving out ‘tickets‘ to Mars.
To hype people up for their Mars Rover landing, the bureau is letting people book a flight to send their names to a future spacecraft headed to Mars.
All submitted and approved names are set to be etched onto a microchip aboard the Mars 2020 rover headed to the Red Planet in 2021.
The bureau has had a similar ‘Send Your Name’ project for their Mars Perseverance rover, with over 10,932,295 participating names.
‘As we get ready to launch this historic Mars mission, we want everyone to share in this journey of exploration,’ shared NASA associate administrator Thomas Zurbuchen
‘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 chance to send your name to Mars comes with a digital boarding pass and ‘frequent flyer’ points.
While it may take decades for humans to reach Mars ourselves, at least a part of us will be traveling outer space in the meantime.
As the meme goes
