Send Your Name to the Moon

I have always dreamed of becoming an astronaut or a “naut” of any kind. However, in a time and place far, far away from the Kennedy Space Center or NASA it has remained merely a dream. Space exploration, space travel, and astronomy, have been a fascination since I was a kid. And to date, there is an exciting opportunity to take part in the journey of a lifetime to the moon. By submitting your name to the “Send Your Name to the Moon” website, you can become a part of the orbiter mission–the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter or LRO. You even get a certificate for your participation by entering your name here. Do it now, the deadline is on June 27, 2008.

Here is a sample of my certificate:

“Everyone who sends their name to the moon, like I’m doing, becomes part of the next wave of lunar explorers,” said Cathy Peddie, deputy project manager for LRO at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. “The LRO mission is the first step in NASA’s plans to return humans to the moon by 2020, and your name can reach there first. How cool is that?”
