Fine, if I must be specific, my name is going to Mars.
Thanks to a hilarious, useless, and completely awesome program—Send my Name to Mars—a microchip containing submitted names will travel to the Red Planet on the Mars2020 rover next year.
You don’t have to explain that to me twice!
I submitted my and my kids’ names to travel with our new rover friend, and we were rewarded with “boarding passes” with our names on them. Check this out:
I also got 313,586,649 “frequent flier club” points (whatever that means) and a mission badge.
It’s official, guys.
I shook a hand that was on the moon, and my name is going to Mars.
