New Mars rover needs a name!


The Mars 2020 Rover needs a name, and students from around the country can help!

NASA is recruiting help from students nationwide to find a name for its next Mars Rover mission. The rover is set to launch in July, but it doesn’t have a name yet.

NASA is asking kids from kindergarten through high school to send in their ideas, in the form of an essay. Submissions are due by November 1.

They plan to announce the selected name on February 18.
