Send yourself to Pluto!

Filed under Just Stuff, Tech

Or.. send your name at least. Since I don’t think there’s really room for all of you to squeeze onto the probe.

At this point, you’re probably asking yourself, “Self, what the hell is he talking about?”

NASA is going to be launching a probe early next year that is going to go check out Pluto and the Kuiper Belt (an Asteroid belt just past Pluto).. and the company that is actually building the probe, is letting people sign up to have their names sent to Pluto (presumably on a CD or something like that). And, if you feel like hanging around.. the probe’s orbit will cause it to return to Earth (or, near Earth) in only 50,000 years..

Go, sign up.. what’s the worst that could happen? Plutonians think we’re attacking and come kick the ass of everyone on the list?
