Two years ago I sent my name to Mars on the InSight mission and forgot all about it. Apparently it landed on Mars in November 2018.

It just seems cool to me that even though I’ll never go, my name is written on a microchip on another planet.

Just for the hell of it, I’m going to send it again on the July 2026 mission to Mars. Hopefully by then I’ll have a decent telescope so I can take a proper picture of the planet.
