Here’s a chance to become part of a NASA mission. You can send your name which will be etched on a microchip aboard the OSIRIS-REx mission that will travel to the 500m wide asteroid called Bennu in 2016. The mission will collect samples of the asteroid and return them to Earth for analysis. 

If you like or follow the mission on Facebook or Twitter you will receive updates on where your name is in space.
