Just go to their Facebook page: #CountdownToMars Virtual NASA Social Answer a few questions, and get approved. You will then be able to participate. This is a great opportunity to be part of the historic launch later this month, when the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover will launch on its mission to the red planet.
