Found 9th Aug 2014
NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission and The Planetary Society invite you to submit your name for a round-trip ride to asteroid Bennu. Your name will hitch a ride to the asteroid, spend 500 days there, and return in the Sample Return Capsule to Earth in 2023.

Plus your name will be on the spacecraft, which will remain in space long after returning the sample return capsule to Earth.

You can submit names until September 30, 2014

Wow I get to stay put on Earth and my name will travel in space for 2yrs. It will be more famous than me gosh I would get jealous so I will surpass this.

As they say sounds too good to be true.

Heat for the pic.

And the deal/freebie too of course!

Great find thank you

The aliens will find those names quicker than you can say saguney weaver

I sent my name in Klingon just in case they don't read English - "Cr'Gretl".

I was so tempted to troll this but then I thought it was way cooler to not!

Do I get my name back when it returns ? oO

I'm sure there would be some takers (pun not intended) even if it were true

Would it be covered by the data protection act? Don't want my name falling into Extraterrestrial hands. "No I haven't crashed my spaceship or tripped on a black hole in the past 5 years". Heat though!

And how do we know they really send our names up there

I didn't know what that was, so I googled it. I guess it has some merit. It may wipe a few of them out of the gene pool if we're lucky.

Thought it was a lovely idea. Love the picture
