We don't have chance go to the galaxy or the planets outside the Earth, because it is expensive to fly and we don't have experience to learn the NASA. Many kids always wish to see there too since they got their dream, so it is not easy to chase this dream to become the astronaut!
How it works? Read this info below;
"According to NASA, NASA is inviting the public to send their names on a microchip to destinations beyond low-Earth orbit, including Mars. Your name will begin its journey on a dime-sized microchip when the agency's Orion spacecraft launches Dec. 4 on its first flight, designated Exploration Flight Test-1.
After a 4.5-hour, two-orbit mission around Earth to test Orion's systems, the spacecraft will travel back through the atmosphere at speeds approaching 20,000 mph and temperatures near 4,000 degrees Fahrenheit, before splashing down in the Pacific Ocean. But the journey for your name doesn't end there.
After returning to Earth, the names will fly on future NASA exploration flights and missions to Mars. With each flight, selected individuals will accrue more miles as members of a global space-faring society. "
The mission of the Orion spacecraft will be tested for initial orbit around the Earth, before returning to the Pacific ocean. However, NASA said on one day, they will be sent Orion to Mars, then the names collected will be sent there through the microchip! So interesting!
