A Dutch-based non-profit is letting people purchase craters on Mars in their name.  

The "People's Map Of Mars" is being developed by the space-funding company Uwingu.  Most of the markings on Uwingo's map will contain names chosen by members of the public.

Uwingu is looking to name 500,000 craters.

The group plans to send astronauts to Mars in 2025 and take the People's Map with them.
