But putting your name on Olympus Mons costs a little extra...

I'm just as excited about the space program as the next guy, but exactly what does having your name on a DVD on Mars accomplish? The only people who could read it are astronauts from Earth, so why put it up there in the first place?

Because it was cool.

(Bonus points for anyone who can say where I got that from - Hint: it was also Mars-related)
