+ - NASA Invites Students to Name the Next Rover

iamlucky13 writes: Following in the footsteps of the Mars Exploration Rovers, which were named Spirit and Opportunity based on a short essay by nine-year-old Sofi Collis, NASA has announced a new competition for US students ages 5 to 18 to choose a name for the Mars Science Laboratory. The contest is co-sponsored by Disney, with their WALL-E character serving as a "spokes-robot" for the program. The winning student will enjoy a trip to NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab to see the rover under construction and have an opportunity to mark their signature on it. A website has been set up for prospective entrants, and more information about NASA's giant new rover, scheduled for launch in the fall of 2009 is available on the program website.
