It's only 1's and 0's, but it's still a thrill to have your name on board a spacecraft.
And there's still time to get on Glory.

That same page says...

Glory is scheduled for launch in June 2009 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Check out http://glory.gsfc.nasa.gov/

Launch Date : Nov. 22, 2010 2:30 a.m. PST

Goddard employees (and probably other centers too) were just notified that there's still time for this -- so sign up.
Did you try?

I put Georgie on board roughly a year and half ago.
Here's his certificate.
He's also orbiting the moon right now -- on LRO (http://lunar.gsfc.nasa.gov/).
