Think your students might want to go to the moon? Well, they can! Or at least their names can! The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO spaceship) will be taking an exploration journey in preparation for NASA’s return to the moon.
You can add your name to a database that will be placed on a microchip to be embedded into the spacecraft. Visit http://lro.jhuapl.edu/NameToMoon/index.php to add your name (and print a certificate, if you wish).
I’ve added my name!
The LRO website has lots of information and resources to share with your students.
