Put Your Face In Space!

NASA is making a weird offer to us civilians for its final two Space Shuttle missions: you can put your face in space. Upload a photo and some personal data (that will probably come back to haunt you) to Face in Space. They make it look like you're in the driver's seat, and they'll send the image up on the next launch. Needless to say, we all did it here. It's also weirdly satisfying to send BP CEO Tony Hayward into space, if you have a few minutes:
