Default Now you can go to Mars in 2011

NASA and JPL are taking names to put on a microchip being attached to the Mars Rover being sent up in 2011. You can add you name to the chip and get a certificate to print out with a certification number to prove you did it.
I got mine! Get your name on the chip and go down in history.

Woot, my name is going to Mars!

It kinda seems like one of those things for school activities or something. Oh well, I wonder if we can actually find our names somewhere in 2011.

Can anything corrode away in space if there is no air, supposedly no life, or water?

Hey that is pretty cool!
My name is going into space, and into history. =D
I wonder how big the microchip is, could it run out of space?
