Ahead of NASA’s Mars Rover mission scheduled to take off on July 17, 2020, NASA is inviting people to fly their names to the red planet. NASA in a tweet invited people to get a boarding pass and fly their names to Mars. NASA will reportedly, place a microchip on the rover which will have the names of people who get a boarding pass. The rover is expected to touch down on Mars on February 18, 2021.
When our #Mars2020 rover lands on the Red Planet in 2021, it will carry a microchip etched with the names of millions of people from planet Earth. Is yours on it?
