It will achieve absolutely nothing, but please stop whatever the fuck you are doing and do this pointless thing immediately.
NASA will be sending the ORION spacecraft (Mars-bound) to Earth's low orbit, to test out its systems. To celebrate this event, they are inviting the general public of the planet Earth to submit their names to be included on a chip that will be carried inside the spaceship.
Then, it will crash catastrophically into the Pacific ocean from the height of 2,000 kilometers, which is probably a more exciting death than one any of you could ever hope to achieve. I kid I kid, it will be retrieved from the clasps of Neptune after the (presumably) successful low-orbit tests and then sent on its way to the Red Planet (The Sun).
Your name will be launched into the cosmos on December 4th, 2014.
So far, 250,000 people have signed up for this mostly pointless exercise. At least 500 of them will be boarding passes for PENIS PENIS PENIS PENIS.
