This is not the first time that NASA has given us the opportunity to take some of us to Mars. While it's just a name hidden on a chip somewhere on the machine, it's always something we are proud to participate. At least I speak for myself.
The new mission "Mars 2020 Rover" goes to the red planet in 2020 and you can send your name aboard the mission. The "boarding gate" closes on September 30 this year.
How to send your name to the red planet
To send your name to Mars you just have to register on the NASA website. Give your name, zip code and email. Shortly after registration you receive a small "boarding pass" which you can always share on social networks or print and paste in the living room.
By registering you will also earn miles. These miles will be worth nothing to you but a good starting point. When there's nothing to say you just have to say "Do you know I have 300 million miles accumulated?"
What will the Mars 2020 Rover mission bring?
The mission is scheduled to start as early as July 2020 and will reach Mars in February 2021. If the landing is successful, the "Mars 2020 Rover" should replace the already "dead" Discovery.
That is, we have more information about the appearance of the planet, geology and whether or not there is any sign of life. This is the big question hanging in the air. If Mars has ever been (or still is) a planet with life.
By 2030 Man is expected to go to Mars
NASA and Space X are working to get the first man to step on Mars by 2030. However, we still do not know how far these deadlines will be met. Research around the planet is essential, but even more important is understanding how astronauts will survive the trip. I remember that the trip to Mars can take a few months and we don't know how the human body will react so long without gravity.
18,000 UK’s registered for previous mission
More than 18,000 UK’s sent their name in the previous mission "InSight". In Brazil there were 50 thousand people and in the USA more than 600 thousand. The good news is that your name, as InSight "has landed safely on the red planet and is already working to bring us more information about the" tremors of Mars. "
