Help NASA Name The Next Mars Rover

Help NASA Name The Next Mars Rover

NASA is almost ready to launch the next Mars rover towards the red planet. Launching later this year, it will land on the surface in early-2021. NASA asked Elementary and High School students across the country to submit potential names for the vehicle. They received over 28,000 potential names and limited it to 155. Then a panel limited that list to 9 and NASA is asking space geeks everywhere to pick the name. The 9 names are: Endurance, Tenacity, Promise, Perseverance, Vision, Clarity, Ingenuity, Fortitude, and Courage. You can vote for the one you like best by visiting this page. The final name will be announced in mid-March.
