I am a huge fan of these NASA opportunities as it is a way to be one of the "few" names that "may" stay in history. By participating in this opportunity to send your name aboard InSight to the Red Planet, you're showing that you're part of that journey and the future of space! I've send already my name to Mars (2009), in orbit around Planet Pluto (2005), to the Moon (2008), in Face in Space project (2011), tp Bennu asteroid (OSIRIS-REx).
When it lands on Mars in November of 2018, NASA's InSight lander will be carrying several science instruments -- along with hundreds of thousands of names from members of the public.
In 2015, nearly 827,000 people signed up to add their names to a silicon microchip onboard the robotic spacecraft. NASA is now adding a second microchip, giving the public another chance to send their names to Mars!

ATTENTION FREQUENT FLYERS: If you flew your name during our last opportunity in 2015, your name is already aboard the spacecraft. You can retrieve your Boarding Pass.
