Message in a Bottle

Get your name aboard a NASA spacecraft (Europa Clipper) bound for Europa (one of Jupiter's moons) in 2024.  Sure, it will take a while to get there - it needs to travel 1.8 billion miles, but you plan on being around in 2030, don't you?  Join the mission here and have your name engraved on NASA’s Europa Clipper spacecraft as it travels to explore Europa, an ocean world that may support life. It costs you nothing, but you must submit your name prior to 11:59 PM on 31 December 2023.  

Get your name on the Europa Clipper spacecraft - it costs you nothing.Get your name on the Europa Clipper spacecraft - it costs you nothing.

Isn't anyone going to get their name onto a spacecraft?  I find it rather exciting.

But of course.  That picture up at the top is proof.  My wife and I also had our names on a CD that was mounted to the Cassini spacecraft.  I think we did that in the 1990's or earlier.

Oh snap!  My wife and I just saw 'Message in a Bottle' at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC.  This was a modern dance performance set to the music from the Police.  They even placed two folded horn loudspeakers at the corners of the stage to really bring some tight bass to the music.  Excellent performance too - the dancing was most excellent.
