More on the Mars rover: vote for Amelia!


I just checked out the NASA effort to get the public involved in the project to send its new rover to Mars and have hot news about why you should vote to name the rover.

Eight out of the nine name choices are borrrrrrring, but one is highly vote-worthy: Amelia. They don't explain, but presumably this is in loving memory of the daredevil pioneering pilot Amelia Earhart, who died in a Pacific plane crash some 70 years ago.

Ladies, it's the least we can do. You have until March 29. Vote for Amelia!
