Final boarding call for Mars!

NASA is giving you a chance to put your name on the red planet, but there's not much time left.

The deadline to sign up is September 30 at 11:59 p.m. eastern.

When you sign up on NASA's webpage , your name will be stenciled on a chip using an electron beam. That chip will then be put on the Mars 2020 rover.

Plus, you'll be able to download a souvenir boarding pass.

Over 10 million names have been submitted.

The Mars 2020 rover mission is part of NASA's exploration of the planet.

Scientists are hoping the rover will help them answer questions about potential for life on Mars.

It takes off next July.
