The last of these initiatives is a passage to Mars. While it is true that it is years before we reach our planetary neighbor, NASA is giving the public the opportunity to send their names (printed on a microchip) to the red planet. The names will go aboard the Mars 2020 rover scheduled to be launched in July 2020, and it is expected to land on Mars in February 2021.

The opportunity to send our name to Mars comes with a souvenir boarding pass and “frequent flyer” points. This is part of a public participation campaign to highlight the missions involved with NASA’s journey from the Moon to Mars. Miles (or kilometers) are awarded for each “flight”, with the corresponding digital mission patches available for download. More than 2 million names flew in the NASA InSight mission to Mars, giving each “traveler” approximately 300 million frequent flyer miles (nearly 500 million kilometers of frequent travelers).
