NASA is giving us a chance to send our name and personal message into space aboard the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution spacecraft. It is expected to launch in November and will study the upper atmosphere of Mars. It will also carry a DVD of every name submitted.

They are also asking you to submit a poem to go into space; they will select only three and will be voted on by the public. The flight will be in November but the names and poems need to be submitted by July.

To submit to the Going to Mars campaign, go to lasp.colorado.edu/maven/goingtomars
