NASA Invites the Public to Send Names to Mars
The Going to Mars campaign also includes a haiku contest and a student art contest. NASA is inviting the public to submit their names and a haiku online for a DVD to be carried aboard a spacecraft that will study the Martian upper atmosphere. The DVD will carry every name submitted. The public also is encouraged to submit a message in the form of a three-line poem, or haiku. However, only three haikus will be selected. The deadline for all submissions is July 1. An online public vote to determine the top three messages to be placed on the DVD will begin July 15.
