NASA boarding pass - my ticket to ride!
Again, NASA is inviting the world on its Mars: Insight mission.
Our names will be recorded on a silicon microchip and shuttled to Mars onboard the InSight Mars lander. So, it's not really getting up there, which is good enough.
NASA’s InSight Mars lander is scheduled to blast off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in March 2016. InSight will study the deep interior of Mars to understand how all of the rocky planets are formed – including Earth!

This is the second time that NASA has given the public to feel included in their mission. My son is really amazed about all this.
I was also part of the first test mission of the Orion spacecraft capsule. I'm even a Frequent Flyer with NASA. Cool!
