Another opportunity to send your name to space

Filed under: astronomy — Tags: , — Ed @ 2:49 pm

Like the send your name to the moon thing I linked to the other day, Nasa’s Kepler Mission allows you to submit your name to be put on a DVD on the Kepler probe. This spacecraft is designed to look for Earth-like planets in the “habitable zone” near Sun-like planets. Basically it’ll be looking for planets like Earth in an orbit like Earth around a star like the one the Earth orbits. You can submit your name here.
