NASA needs your help! Starting this week, NASA is inviting kindergarten through twelfth grade students to participate in their “Mars 2020 Name the Rover” essay contest. That’s right! There’s a little Mars rover waiting to be named by you! All you have to do is submit a name and a short essay (no more than 150 words) by November 1st as to why your proposed name should be chosen. If you win, you not only get to claim that you named a Mars rover (how cool would that be?), but you also get to witness the launch of the spacecraft that carried it to space at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Out of this world? We think so! This is your chance to be a part of NASA’s “Moon to Mars” missions, so get on it! For more information, click here.
