  • Titan Landing

    I just read that the Huygens probe landed on Saturn's moon Titan.

    Back in 1997, you could send a postcard with your name to JPL and it was to be scanned and put onto the Cassini craft on a special disk. I sent a postcard with my name, along with my husband and one of our friends names. I just thought it would be kind of cool to have that out there in space.

    I also registered my name and a few other people for disks that were attached to the two Mars probes. One of the names I registered was for someone at work that had passed away from cancer. It came with a "certificate" that you could print off with the person's name. I gave it to his family because one of the types of instruments on the probes was the same sort of thing that my coworker used on a construction site to test soil samples. I just thought it would be kind of neat for them to have.

    Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone else got their names onto those probes.

      I'm glad they didn't end up somewhere beyond the rim It's my only chance at near immortality, even if it's in name only.
