Send My Name to Pluto August 30, 2005

Posted by JalanSutera.com™ in Blog.

According to Slasdot.org NASA is preparing to send the New Horizons probe to Pluto. It will be the first earth device to get intimate with the icy planet. And you can be there too – or, at least, your name. NASA is asking everyone to send them their names, which will be attached in the space device. The New Horizons probe will be launched in January 2006 to explore Pluto and the Kuiper belt, in the outskirts of the Solar System. It is expected that the probe will return to earth in approximately 50 thousand years.”

The result is:

That is awesome although I don’t know why we should send our name to Pluto if it’s to return later. It would be cool if they leave our name on the planet surface. Who know if there are some intelligent lifeforms out there, then they’ll get to know you. At least your name :D Do you leave your address or e-mail?
