The Planetary Society is offering people the opportunity to send their names and short messages into space aboard two solar sail missions set for launch this year.

The Lightsail spacecraft is a project involving The Planetary Society. The IKAROS (Interplanetary Kite-craft Accelerated by Radiation of the Sun) will be launched by JAXA.
