Send your name to the stars: The New Horizons Message Initiative

The New Horizons Message Initiative was set up by Jon Lomberg, the space artist who designed the famous golden plate on the Voyager I spacecraft.  Voyager I recently left the heliosphere and is now travelling into interstellar space.

Another craft, the New Horizons space probe, will reach Pluto within two years.  Lomberg’s new initiative aims at storing a cybernetic message on the New Horizons computer.  Apart from developing the message, a far more complex process than one would imagine, they need to get NASA on board.

Therefore, go and sign the petition that they will use to achieve this. As a reward your name could be sent along on the probe, to be discovered millennia later by your own descendants, or something far stranger….
