Interested in space 1 Over 3 lakes Indians have sent their names to NASA.
These names will be sent to the US space agency’s aircraft to Mars next year. Last month, NASA had told people that they would send their names, who will be sent on Mars to ‘Insight’ (Internal Exploration Usage Sesame Investigations) Mission. Those who sent the names were provided online “boarding passes” for the mission.
Names will be engraved on the silicon wafer microchip with the help of an electron beam. The chip will be installed with the Insight Lander deck and it will be on Mars forever. The chip will be taken to the Insight Mission to Mars, which will be on May 5 next year.
