NASA Will Fly Your Face In Space
NASA is inviting people to send photos of their faces into orbit aboard one of the final remaining space shuttle missions.
Visitors to the "Face in Space" website can upload their picture to fly with the astronauts aboard shuttle Discovery’s STS-133 mission or Endeavour’s STS-134 mission. Participants will receive a special certificates from the Face in Space website once the mission is over.
"The Space Shuttle Program belongs to the public, and we are excited when we can provide an opportunity for people to share the adventure of our missions," said Space Shuttle Program Manager John Shannon.
"This website will allow you to be a part of history and participate as we complete our final missions."
Anyone without a picture can skip the image upload option, and NASA will fly their name.
Discovery and Endeavour’s missions are the final two flights remaining until the retirement of the space shuttle fleet. They are targeted to launch in September and November, respectively.
