Re: "We are not alone"
@Mejiac- The toughest part is that 3-20 minute communications delay (depending on where the planets are in orbit and what you are using). you send a selfie and it takes 40 minutes to get the emoji response back. :)

Good to Go
@dave -- very interesting.

>> What do you think? Poor marketing gimmick or a real chance to be involved? 

Like it. Sounds a bit like the 3rd generation love child/offspring of the Ellis Island American Immigrant Wall of Honor (awful name, but a big thing back when they were restoring the Island)

For $150 here it is:

"The American Immigrant Wall of Honor is a permanent exhibit of individual or family names featured at Ellis Island in New York Harbor. It is the only place in the United States where an individual can honor his or her family heritage at a National Monument."

"We are not alone"
As an astronomy enthusiast, I think this NASA program is pretty cool, since it's trying to create awareness of the awesomeness that is space travel and space discovery.

I think an even better marketting campaing would be something like "be the first martian selfie".

I wonder how much the call rates will be from Mars to my dad in Miami? Might not need to worry about as long as I have a Wi Fi hot spot :)
