CD-ROM To Carry Names To Mars

NASA is inviting schoolchildren to be part of the Mars Polar Lander mission by submitting their names to the included on a CD-ROM that will fly onboard the spacecraft.

Students who register online at or will have their names recorded for the CD-ROM. In addition, they can view and print a special certificate that commemorates their participation in the event.

The agency's goal is to collect 1 million names of schoolchildren from around the world for the CD-ROM.
