Send Your Peace Globe Face Into Space ~ NASA is calling

I just launched my face into space on this peace globe via NASA's program called "Face In Space." NASA has invited the public to send their images and names into space on the remaining two final Shuttle Missions. It was fun! The Endeavor launches November 1, 2010 just three days before peace globes fly. Perfect! Once the astronauts return to Earth, you will be given a flight certificate signed by the Mission Commander that is printable from your computer. You can choose which flight you'd like to participate in. The second launch is in 2011. I chose to fly on the Endeavor Mission.

Once you've uploaded the image you will need do a little cropping to fit it inside the shuttle window but the tool is right there on the site for you. I sent this image and cropped my face into the window (see graphic above). How cool to have little blue wishes of peace floating in orbit from all around the world. IMAGINE!
Go here to upload your image to NASA. It's easy! It took about 10 minutes to complete. You even hear a simulated lift-off announcement and see the launch with your face in the shuttle window. Soooo cool and pretty amazing.
You must be 13 years or older to participate.
PLEASE let me know when you do this so that I can keep count of how many peace globes there are in space.

How awesome to know that our peace globe presence will be soaring through the atmosphere at the same time we're launching BlogBlast here on Earth.
It's us.

Hi Mimi, This is cool!

It's been a long time since I've been by. Good to "see you."

Travis Cody said...

Ooops! Forgot to "officially" say mine has been launched. You know...because it's not official until I say it here.


Is it a coincidence that the word "warp" is a part of my word verification?

Mimi Lenox said...

Petula - Long time no see. Hope you are doing well! Isn't it cool?

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - Thank you. I don't believe in coincidence.
