"Message from Earth to Mar's" - Has my name one it !!!

A Long Long time ago (circa 2006),  I got a tidbit to NASA and Project Phoneix. Being an early adopter and fast mover, I registered myself. The outcome of that effort was blogged here and here

So yesterday, was a small milestone of only  250, 000 people, whose name was on the small DVD of Project Phoneix. Here's an except of the notification email :)-


Don't forget that you are a part of this adventure…part of the story of space exploration!

As part of The Planetary Society's Messages from Earth program, your name — along with a quarter million others from around the world — is now on the surface of Mars. Landing with you on the disk is Visions of Mars, a treasure trove of literature and art — from classic works by Arthur C. Clarke and Ray Bradbury to Orson Welles' radio retelling of "The War of the Worlds" to a special audio recording of Carl Sagan delivering a message to the future.

The story of space exploration is being written everyday.

Fifty years ago we couldn't have told this story, but 50 years from now our names and thoughts...those Messages from Earth that we have sent...will be part of the story — part of the permanent record of space exploration.


its great to be part of the 'permanent record of space exploration"  Thanks to  Susan for turning me on  :)-
