NASA in their continued awesomeness is allowing members of the public to have their names etched on a microchip that will go to Mars on the InSight (Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport) lander. The team at JPL is using an electron beam machine, which is normally used to make high-precision microdevices, to etch the names on a microchip that is about the size of a dime. Once on Mars, InSight will study what is happening beneath the surface of the red planet with a sophisticated array of instruments. Our CEO will be headed to Mars, and you can have your named etched on this microchip as well, just click here. This is a really good way for anyone to support space exploration.
