Nasa offers last chance to ‘fly your name around the moon’

CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES - MARCH 17: People watch as NASA's SLS Moon Megarocket, crowned by the Orion spacecraft, ejects from the Vehicle Assembly Building at Kennedy Space Center en route to the launch of Complex 39B for a launch rehearsal rolls out March 17, 2022 in Cape Canaveral, Florida. NASA's Artemis 1 lunar mission will send an unmanned Orion spacecraft into orbit around the moon before splashing down in the Pacific Ocean. The test launch is planned for May 2022 at the earliest, with NASA hoping to send the next astronauts to the moon in 2025 at the earliest. (Photo by Paul Hennessy/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images)

You may not be able to travel to space yet, but you can still be part of Nasa’s Artemis I mission to the moon.

The Space Agency is offering the option to add your name on a flash drive that will travel aboard the Artemis I.

Since Nasa announced the plan in March, nearly 3 million people have submitted their names for the upcoming test flight.

This week will be your last chance to register your name if you haven’t already.

To send your name into space, simply go to Nasa’s website and enter your name and a custom PIN to create your boarding pass.

Make sure you don’t forget your PIN as you will need it to access your boarding pass in the future.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive a digital boarding pass with your name, flight details, and a QR code that will direct you to an invitation to become part of Nasa’s Virtual Guest program, which gives you the opportunity to virtually attend launches and other events organized by NASA.

Artemis I will be the first unmanned flight test of the Space Launch System rocket and the Orion spacecraft. The flight paves the way to landing the first woman and the first person of color on the moon as early as 2025.

In March, Nasa finally rolled its moon rocket from the assembly plant to its launch pad in Florida.

Artemis I is currently scheduled to launch from Kennedy Space Center this summer.
