Submission + - Help NASA decide where to explore ! (nasa.gov)

An anonymous reader writes: NASA is inviting the public to vote on where to perform a simulated lunar mission at http://desertrats.arc.nasa.gov/

In September 2010, NASA will be simulating a lunar mission in northern Arizona. Astronauts will drive the "Space Exploration Vehicle"
(http://www.nasa.gov/exploration/home/SEV.html) to explore and do geology field work. NASA has taken two GigaPan (www.gigapan.org) panoramic images of the test site. You can look at these images and vote to help NASA decide which location to visit. The location that receives the most votes will be incorporated into the mission plan and astronauts will go there in the SEV to perform field geology and collect rock samples. Voting ends on August 8, 2010.
