I'm thrilled to see "Visions of Mars" fly again; I remember looking forward to it being on the Mars '96 spacecraft. Then again, I like time capsules in general.

I just submitted my name and got certificate number 1.16 million something. If I interpret the number, that is almost 1 million names that got added in the last 24 hours.

The Planetary Society started these participation certificates at 1000000 (The 'Wish Upon The Moon' campaign for SELENE is the same way). 161,000 names have actually been submitted...which is obviously still a lot, don't get me wrong!

For Stardust and the Mars Rovers, on the other hand, 1 million and 4 million names were submitted, respectively. wink.gif

Don't forget, though, we had years to collect names for the MER DVD. For this one we only had a few months.

I read that the MER names include those submitted for Mars Polar Lander and the 2001 Surveyor. Must've been a drag for those people to wait a couple more years to see their names fly. Hope the JPL folks are getting close to finding a landing site for Phoenix

...and komapsumnida! smile.gif Very nice, Doug; now UMSF will be in future history books (well, undoubtedly the electronic equivalents thereof) for sure!

I truly love how, printed on the face of the CD (which contains my name as well, BTW):

"Astronauts: Take This With You!"

My nine year old son asked me where on the lander the DVD is positioned. Any ideas or pics ?

Also, will the DVD be in a position to be imaged by the Phoenix cameras once on the Martian surface?

Cheers

Brian
