OSIRIS-REx is a space mission by the University of Arizona, NASA, and Lockheed Martin to collect samples from asteroid 101955 Bennu. The spacecraft will be launched in 2016 and the Sample Return Capsule will come back to Earth in 2023.
Anyway, recently they have allowed people to submit their names to be engraved on a microchip that will be on the sample return capsule and spacecraft. It's a similar situation to Stardust back in 99.
From the website:
NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission and The Planetary Society invite you to submit your name for a round-trip ride to asteroid Bennu. Your name will hitch a ride to the asteroid, spend 500 days there, and return in the Sample Return Capsule to Earth in 2023.
Plus your name will be on the spacecraft, which will remain in space long after returning the sample return capsule to Earth.

My first thought was to sign up in honor of Ryan. I am Certificate #00051793, with the name Ryan "Taswell" Davis. Long after the world is blown up by aliens or t-rexs in spaceships, Ryan's name will be on some far off asteroid, floating through space.
