Subject: send yer name to mars!

On December 3, 1999 the Mars Polar Lander will
enter the Martian atmosphere encased in a
protective shell and travelling at hypersonic speed.
Its parachute will open and it will rendevous with
the planet's surface at a predetermined spot within
500 miles of the Martian south pole.

NASA invites you to be a part of this historic event. This
website's goal is to collect 1 million names of school
children from around the world, and combine these names on a
CD-ROM that is going to be ncluded in the payload of the Mars
Polar Lander.

Amazing! You become part of history and at the same
time a little bit of yourself becomes part of Mars!

OK, what do I do?

So how do you become part of history? Follow these simple
directions! First, fill out the following form and your
name will be recorded for the CD-ROM. You can then
print your certificate from the "success" page.
