What should the next Mars Rover be named?

March 26, 2009 by Jill W. Tallman, Associate Editor

Sunday, March 29, is the last day that you can vote for the name of the Mars Rover.

Schoolchildren across the United States came up with the nine names that made the final cut: Sunrise, Adventure, Pursuit, Perception, Curiosity, Wonder, Amelia, Journey, and Vision.

(Do you think NASA is finally starting to get hip to what can happen when you ask the public to vote for something in an online poll? CNN reports that they’re pretty close to having a room on the space station named after Stephen Colbert.)

    I think it’s a great idea to get kids involved in thinking about space travel. They are the future of the things we hold precious now.
