CREOLE NAMES ON STARDUST SPACECRAFT

I stumbled across this site and found that my brother's name was listed on the the microchip of the StarDust spacecraft that was sent to rendezvous with a comet. I also found a few other names. If you would like to see if your name is on the list click here to visit NASA's site: http://stardust.jpl.nasa.gov/overview/microchip/index.html

The microchips are in outer space onboard the STARDUST spacecraft. STARDUST was launched on February 7, 1999 carrying the two sets of microchips. Two copies of each chip were installed on the spacecraft (for a total of four chips). One set of microchips is mounted inside the Sample Return Capsule, and will return back to Earth with the capsule in the year 2006. The other set of chips is mounted in the spacecraft body and will remain in space forever.
