Hey Space Placers!
Want to go into space?
Now you can, or at least your name can. JAXA has started collecting names to send to an asteroid which will be left on the space rock. You can also opt to have your name on the sample return capsule, or on both.
Spacecraft planners are doing this on almost each solar system mission which is smart because it gets the public interested in the mission and allows us to be a part of it. My family's name is on just about every spacecraft that has done this.
