I’m on the way to Mars!

About a year ago now, I signed up to have my name added to the Phoenix DVD Project. Well today the Phoenix launched and is on the way to the Red Planet.

In addition to more than a quarter million of names, the Phoenix DVD carries Visions of Mars: The First Martian Library.

When the first human explorers set foot on Mars and discover the disk, mounted to the deck of the Phoenix spacecraft, they will see a special note “Attention Astronauts: Take This With You.” When they decode the data on the disk and unlock its secrets, they will receive a wealth of information about how Mars was seen by 20th and 21st century Earth. This disk is a very special message to the future from Earth, created by the members of The Planetary Society.

Here is a link to a great article on MyADSL about the Phoenix Spacecraft’s launch and mission
