I thought this was pretty cool:

"What does submitting my name do?
All submitted names are reviewed, approved and then etched onto a microchip. The microchip is placed aboard the Mars 2020 rover, which will land on Mars."

You can do this at https://mars.nasa.gov/participate/send-your-name/mars2020/

I sent one for each of my immediate family members. The 3 of us :)

I find it strange that Turkey has so many more signed up than anyone else. India I understand due to the size of the population. But I'm curious the reason for Turkey's vast participation.

Well, if you knew what party Erdogan is leading, you wouldn't be as surprised...
