Uwingu Mars Crater Contest
Uwingu is a small, for-profit company founded by astronomers, planetary scientists, space educators, and former NASA personnel. Their mission is to create new ways for people to personally connect with space exploration and astronomy and, in turn, raise funds for space exploration, research, and education grants. With Uwingu’s Mars Mapping Project, the public can purchase the naming rights to one of the more than 500,000 unnamed craters on the Red Planet. The new map of Mars will be sent to the Red Planet by the Mars One project. Learn more.
