Want to promote your business in space? Or just have your name fly by the planets? Well, you can sign up at this site and in 2010 watch the spacecraft launch into orbit with your name or logo on it just like the NASCAR cars. On the website they claim that we’re a group of students at MIT and Georgia Tech, looking for ways to share the excitement of space exploration with the world AND launch our spacecraft at the same time. We’re here to offer you a tax-deductible way to share your message or inspiration with the world, or surprise a loved one with a unique and memorable gift.
