Submit Your Name to Fly Aboard Next Mars Rover

Members of the public who want to send their name to Mars on NASA's next rover mission to the Red Planet (Mars 2020) can get a souvenir boarding pass and their names etched on microchips to be affixed to the rover.

Would you like to send your name to Mars with the 2020 Mars Rover? NASA is giving the public the opportunity to send their names - stenciled on chips - to the Red Planet with NASA's Mars 2020 rover.
