Have your personal message launched with the Kepler Mission to locate Earth-like planets. — How Rare Is the Earth?

What do you think about the search for extrasolar planets? NASA’s Kepler Mission team would like to know, and so would the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. On the Kepler Mission “Names in Space” web page, you are invited to submit a short statement (up to 500 words) about the Kepler Mission and its search for other Earths. We’d like to hear your opinion about the significance of this project and its search. You are also invited to submit your name, city, state and country. Once registered, you will be able to download a Kepler Mission certificate of participation from the website. (No SPAM: Email addresses are NOT collected.

The names and statements of all participants will be burned onto a DVD, and launched into space on board the Kepler spacecraft next spring. The information will also be provided to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum as a historical document of public opinion about the mission and space exploration.

There’s a deadline to get on board: November 1, 2008.
