I’m not exactly sure why, but NASA has launched a program to get your face into orbit. They want to put a picture of you on one of the two remaining space shuttle missions. You can choose between mission STS-133 with an expected launch date of 11/01/2010 and mission STS-134 with an expected launch date of 02/26/2011.
Simply visit NASA’s Face In Space website, choose your mission, upload your photo, and get into orbit. Return to the site after mission launch to print your Flight Certificate – a commemorative certificate signed by the Mission Commander. You can also check on mission status, view mission photographs, and follow the commander and crew on Twitter or Facebook.
