If you read my last post you know that I have always been fascinated by space flight, especially manned space flight. NASA’s Orion capsule, designed for deep space missions, is going to make its first flight December 4th on an Atlas IV rocket. At the NASA website you can signup for a boarding pass for that flight and possibly the first manned flight to Mars. Your name will be etched on a microchip that will fly on the Orion capsule for its maiden flight. Here is my boarding pass.
