I'm on my Way to Mars

I'm on my way to Mars.

At least my name is. This morning I received an email from the Planetary Society, telling me that the DVD containing my name (as well as of the quarter-million others), has been installed in the Phoenix spacecraft. The names, through the Messages from Earth program, will piggyback on the spacecraft to Mars.

The Phoenix lander will be launched this August from Cape Canaveral and will reach the red planet in June 2008.
