Send your name to the SUN on NASA's Parker Solar Probe for FREE

Found 7th Mar
Seems like a bit of fun, could be great to get kids a bit more interested in physics/space etc.
Launches sometimes between July 31st and August 19th, 2018.


Just requires your name and an email address, and in return you get a certificate with your name on.

I'll say my name is "Sum Ting Hott"
And I'll do a childish giggle

I actually want to do that
Wouldn't it make me the first person to send a joke into the sun?

If I said I was called Chicken Wings.
I could claim the title of hottest chicken wings ever(highfive)

I'm not sending my name, it will just give the aliens a checklist for who they're going to eat first!
My name is Icarus, bet the Sun won’t have come across anyone with that name before!

Somehow I doubt just the sun will see your name and email address. . .

Cue junk mail for eternity.

Might as well name a star / buy a plot of land on the Moon etc.

I'm waiting until they send a probe to Uranus.

Voted hot
Why? You think it might be fun? You need to get out more
Sounds like a cunning plan by the aliens to get our email addresses and spam our mailboxes 🤔

Chances are though you could find a way to see this thing launch in the Summer, which would be a lot more interesting for kids than simply telling them a star is named after them.
And just wait for the fried spam to arrive.
Any chance we can send The Sun into the sun?

Yeah you’d love that. Dirty boy
So is this like a voodoo doll thing? Get in the sun Billy Jr! Grr!
My other name "Boaty Mcboatface" has been sent.
I still don't trust NASA after those leathal space shuttles that they launched even though they were so flawed from the start.

I shouldn't have been drinking Pepsi when I read your comment, I laughed so hard it almost came out my nose lol
I hope they send the probe during night time, wouldn`t want to see it melt from the heat...
NASA usually does this stuff. It's just a bit of fun but they do follow through with it. They even took a photo with Curiosity to show where the 2 chips holding the names were and that they are on Mars.

Don't understand the negativity really. I am sure my 2, nearly 3 year old, son will love the idea that his name is on a spacecraft.
