  • I am a huge fan of these NASA opportunities as it is a way to be one of the "few" names that "may" stay in history. By participating in this opportunity to send your name aboard InSight to the Red Planet, you're showing that you're part of that journey and the future of space!  I've send already my name to Mars (2009), in orbit around Planet Pluto (2005)to the Moon (2008), in Face in Space project (2011), tp Bennu asteroid (OSIRIS-REx).

    When it lands on Mars in November of 2018, NASA's InSight lander will be carrying several science instruments -- along with hundreds of thousands of names from members of the public.

    In 2015, nearly 827,000 people signed up to add their names to a silicon microchip onboard the robotic spacecraft. NASA is now adding a second microchip, giving the public another chance to send their names to Mars!

    ATTENTION FREQUENT FLYERS: If you flew your name during our last opportunity in 2015, your name is already aboard the spacecraft. You can retrieve your Boarding Pass.

    35th shuttle mission

    The 133rd space shuttle flight launched on February 24, 2011. On this 35th shuttle mission to the International Space Station, Discovery will deliver the Express Logistics Carrier 4 and critical spare components to the Station. The pressurized logistics module will be a permanent fixture at the Station for supply storage.

    This certifies that the face of Cedric Walter has flown in space aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery on mission STS-133 from February 24 - March 9, 2011. The face was flown on Discovery's mission to the International Space Station at an altitude of 220 miles above the Earth. It flew at a speed of more than 17,400 miles per hour as it orbited our planet. On behalf of my crew and all of NASA, we thank you for sharing the excitement of our mission and welcome your interest in space exploration. We were glad to have you aboard.
