NASA is going to send a new rover to the MARS on 2020 and this time there is an opportunity for everyone to send their name to the Mars.
The rover will be launched on July 2020 and it will make it way through space and land on the surface of Mars in February 2021.
All submitted names are reviewed, approved and then etched onto a microchip. The microchip is placed aboard the Mars 2020 rover, which will land on Mars. An image of the final chip will be put on the Mars 2020 Send Your Name to Mars homepage, and the Mars 2020 mission homepage after it is installed on the rover, sometime in the Spring of 2020.
If you want to send your name then sign up here to Send Your Name here. Enter your name and country (and in the India, your zip code) and submit it to our site to get your Boarding Pass. If you’d like to join NASA’s “Frequent Flyer Program” and receive a notification when the next mission is coming, you can add your email to the form. However, your email is not required.
NASA won’t publish the final list of names. All names are reviewed prior to submission on the mission microchip.
