Invader Xan is going to Mars! Well… That’s not to say that I’m going to Mars (given the option, I prefer not to talk about myself in the third person). More that my online alias is going to Mars. Once again, NASA are collecting names to be sent into space. This time to another planet. A microchip, containing the names of thousands of people is going to be sent aboard the Curiosity rover (formerly known as the Mars Science Laboratory). Yeah, ok. I know it doesn’t really mean much, but there’s still something kinda cool about it.
To send your own name, just go to their website and fill out your details. You get a little certificate and everything!
As cool as it would be to actually go to Mars, for now, this will have to do. Ah, c’est la vie.
