Posted on by .

NASA’s Orion spacecraft is preparing for its upcoming flight test in December, and you can submit your name to be flown on the flight! Submit your name by following this link and your first and last name will be digitized and placed on a dime-sized microchip that will be stowed inside the uncrewed Orion spacecraft as it makes two orbits reaching up to about 3,600 miles above Earth before coming back and splashing down in the Pacific Ocean. Your name will also make it farther out into space on future exploration missions by NASA, too! You have until Oct. 31 to sign up to send your name into orbit and take this chance to write your name across the sky.

    Thank you!
    It is a brilliant idea, esp. for those of us who share the dream of reaching outer space.
    We are grateful. 🙂 Thank you.

    Get real, Apollo did this and more back in the 1960’s. Did the test entry speed of about 25,000 MPH and used old tech electronics. And Orion is going nowhere with out a NASA strong energy program and intelligent leadership, not just “yes men”.

    The US Navy has been living and working with a strong energy source. This power supply will supply power to learn to live off the land on the Moon and Mars, power the VASIMR engine for fast and safer trips to Mars and beyond that will save lives.

    The NASA center in Ohio, the John Glen Center has designs for a powerful engine to operate in the deep gravity wells of the earth, Moon and Mars. This engine will power the 24 hour Lunar Shuttle (LEO to Lunar Orbit). This will help support a growing space economy. Back to the moon to stay and onto Mars.

    Hi I tried to register for sending my name to Mars by NASA’s Orion mission.
    going by the steps for registrations – i land on this link – http://mars.nasa.gov/participate/send-your-name/orion-first-flight/#name-form (And the page displays) This web page is not available.

    After hitting for details the following message appears

    The server at mars.nasa.gov can’t be found, because the DNS lookup failed. DNS is the network service that translates a website’s name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server or a firewall preventing Google Chrome from accessing the network.

    Would love to register for My name but i can’t.

    Great idea. I’ve always wanted to explore and see the beauty of space for myself, but that’s impossible for me. At least now I can have something sent out there in space!
