Send a Picture of Your Face to Outer Space

With only two remaining space shuttle missions, NASA wants to send a picture of your face to space. Given that we've all passed on our dreams of being astronauts, unlike Leroy Chiao, this is as close as we'll ever get.

In order to participate, you'll need to upload a picture of your face (or name if you're afraid of lonely astronaut temptations) to NASA's website. From there, you'll get to choose which mission you want your face to be sent along with, the STS-133 or STS 134. After the mission is complete, you'll receive a snazzy commemorative Flight Certificate signed by the Mission Commander. Sounds like a win for everybody except those under 13, who will need parental consent. Chances are your picture will only be transported through memory stick but hey, let's not get picky now.
