I’m on Mars!

Well, I’m sort of Mars by proxy but still pretty cool. The Planetary Society put a DVD library on the Phoenix lander called “Visions of Mars” that includes all sort of written and other media material from Earth including 250,000 names, one of them being mine. It’s confirmed by the photo here that the DVD is there and intact.

If we never get to Mars, this will be there for a long, long time, perhaps only to eventually settle under dust or perhaps to be looked at my future human or non-human explorers.

Or, in my favorite fantasy, the list gives our Martian overlords a nice list of people for abducting (I just hope I get Marvin the Martian as my overlord. He rocks!)
