You are unlikely to fly to the moon anytime soon- or ever. However, you can definitely send your name there, courtesy this NASA offer. Yes, flying to the moon will be your name if you add it to this list meant for NASA's Artemis I mission. "Add your name here to have it included on a flash drive that will fly aboard Artemis I," NASA says. Artemis I will be the first un-crewed flight test of the Space Launch System rocket and the Orion spacecraft, which will be carrying names of humans but, not any humans! You can add your name to the flash drive that will launch on an Orion capsule with the help of a giant Space Launch System rocket. However, this is not the first time NASA has provided such an opportunity to the general public. Earlier, with Mars rover missions, NASA sent around 11 million names with the Perseverance rover.

All about Artemis I mission

Artemis I is the first integrated test of NASA's deep space exploration systems – the Orion spacecraft, Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, and the ground systems at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. As this will be a complex mission, in the first series, Artemis I will bring an un-crewed flight test to build a foundation for human deep space exploration – basically to extend permanent human presence all the way to the Moon itself. The mission will launch the most powerful rocket in the world and ‘fly farther than any spacecraft built for humans has ever flown,' NASA claims. The Orion spacecraft will stay in space more than any other spaceship for astronauts has done without docking to a space station. This is the first phase in the long Artemis mission series, which will comprise two more missions after this. NASA further mentioned that the Artemis missions will be the first of its kind to land the first woman and first person of colour on the Moon.

How to give your name for Artemis I mission

NASA has invited all those who are interested to have their names added to a list on a flash drive that will launch on an Orion capsule. To get your name on board, you will need to give your name and PIN which will assign you a digital boarding pass. You can visit NASA's website to sign up your name from here - https://www.nasa.gov/send-your-name-with-artemis/.
