Can’t afford to go to Mars? Send your Name instead

If you felt a trip to Mars is not possible in this lifetime, NASA is giving you an opportunity to send your name instead.Now you’re probably wondering how this trip is even possible?

NASA explained that the names will be etched on a dime-sized chip with lines of text smaller than one-thousandth the width of a human hair (75 nanometers). The Microdevices Laboratory at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, will use an electron beam to engrave about a million names onto a silicon chip that will be affixed to the rover. This means that even though you’re not in the spacecraft physically, you’re already part of the mission…in spirit.

You can add your name to the list until September 30 and obtain the souvenir boarding pass to Mars.
