Send Your Name to Mars


You can send your name to Mars aboard the InSight spacecraft which is planned to launch March 2016. The InSight spacecraft is planned to land on Mars September 28, 2016 and will be investigating the deep interior of Mars. To learn more about the InSight mission you can go to the mission website at: insight.jpl.nasa.gov

Those that sent their name aboard the Orion spacecraft during its first test flight will be happy to see that you are able to use the same login information that was used previously and also NASA has introduced a frequent flyer program. Each Journey to Mars mission will allow the public to add their name to the spacecraft and each spacecraft that your name is on will give you points.

If you did not participate during the Orion first test flight don’t worry you can still participate with the remaining Journey to Mars missions. To include your name on the InSight spacecraft you must submit your name by September 8th, 2016. To submit your name go here:
