NASA invites people of all ages to join the lunar exploration journey with an opportunity to send their names to the moon aboard the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, spacecraft.
The Send Your Name to the Moon Web site enables everyone to participate in the lunar adventure and place their names in orbit around the moon for years to come. Participants can submit their information at lro.jhuapl.edu/NameToMoon/
, print a certificate and have their name entered into a database. The database will be placed on a microchip that will be integrated onto the spacecraft. The deadline for submitting names is June 27, 2008.
In short: Submit your name to the database on the NASA website and they'll put it on a microchip that will be embedded on a satellite set to orbit the moon. So you could "be a part" of this mission. Kinda cheesy but pretty cool at the same time. You get a printable certificate after.
Here's an example (all you Gundam nerds know know who this is):
