For those who don't have millions to pay to become a space tourist, NASA has rolled out a quirky souvenir that lets you to send your face (your picture and name, that is) blasting into space.
To catch a ride (almost) on a rocket, all you have to do is head to this channel of the NASA site, upload your photo and choose which of the last two shuttle missions will carry around what is sure to become a memorable memento once it is back on Earth.
Only two scheduled shuttle flights are left, so as they say — act now.
