WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- As it stands now, only a select few people will get to visit Mars in the coming decades. But while you're stuck here on Earth, your name can be touring the Red Planet and other popular solar system destinations. That's right, NASA is promising to take your name to everywhere its Orion spacecraft goes.
More than 1.3 million people have sent their names to NASA. The monikers will be stored on a microchip and installed in the spacecraft, which will take its first test flight in December. Participants will have to wait a while before they can brag to their friends about their Martian-bound name.
