Hurry, it's your last day to get your name on the moon (at least via the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter)

We did it. We are sending our names to the moon via NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Well, I did it. Marty didn’t. He’s in a session and knows nothing about it. And H.o.p. didn’t do it either, to tell the truth. I called his attention to the project thinking he would be “Oh, wow!” and want to type in his name himself and print out his certificate himself, and he said, “Wow, great!” then went running off.

Some people just don’t appreciate anything. You put their name on the moon and their response is, “Oh, uh, thanks, but why?” like it is such a simple thing, like it only took you two seconds to fill out a name field on a web page and submit it.

Anyway, our names will be on the moon. And while I’m at it I’m going to submit the names of some dead people, too, since they can’t submit them themselves (how many times do you think Galileo has been submitted) and the names too of some of our favorite fictitious and imaginary friends since they too are unable to do it for themselves. Yes, it’s a sacrifice of my time but that’s the kind of person I am.
