If you've ever wanted to go into space but can't hack it as an astronaut, then maybe NASA's Face in Space program is right up your alley. This program lets you load a picture of yourself that will be sent into orbit, thus making you an astronaut...kind of.
The odds of me (and you) becoming an astronaut are slim to none, which is what makes Face in Space so badass. It is simple to upload and crop your picture into the flight. If you are a shy guy or gal, then you can just give your name, and that will be flown on to the flight. Check the links if you want to send yourself into orbit.
