Send Your Name to Moon on NASA LRO Spacecraft

Want to send your name on a mission to the moon? NASA invites people of all ages to join the lunar exploration journey with an opportunity to send their names to the moon aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft. Fortunately for you, the deadline of June 27, 2008 has been extended to July 25 by popular demand.

Submit your information, print a certificate and have your name entered into a database, which will be placed on a microchip that be integrated onto the spacecraft. LRO is scheduled to launch later this year and will map the lunar surface to help locate safe landing sites and vital resources on the moon.

BloggerTalks interviewed Stephanie Stockman about blogging at NASA

The idea came from several places. The engineers on the LRO project suggested sending names and I had worked with the New Horizons mission to Pluto, where they sent names on their spacecraft. Our plans to get it out there included working with the Planetary Society, coordinating a press release and new webpage with NASA Headquarters as well as utilizing social media.

You can stay updated at the LRO Twitter site. Over 1 million names have been submitted already and my name is going to the moon, is yours?
