NASA is asking for your help naming the 2020 Mars Rover.

The final nine names that may now be voted on are:

  1. Endurance
  2. Tenacity
  3. Promise
  4. Perseverance
  5. Vision
  6. Clarity
  7. Ingenuity
  8. Fortitude
  9. Courage

Votes may be cast until the polls close on Monday, January  27, 2020.

NASA will announce the winning name on March 15th, 2020.
