NASA wants to put your face in space during the final space shuttle missions! People can send their pictures and names to NASA, and the photos and names will be electronically transferred to the space shuttles during an upcoming mission. The files will then be transferred back to Earth, and people who entered their photos will be able to print a certificate saying they had their faces in space!
“Since the space shuttles belong to the public, this is an opportunity for the people to ‘ride along’ [during the final shuttle missions],” said Kyle Herring from the NASA press office. Lots of people are interested in the program. NASA has received over 170,000 entries so far!
The program is open to people ages 13 and up. If you are under 13, ask your parent to upload your photo.
