Name That Satellite

https://i0.wp.com/www.universetoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/02/173658main_glastimage2lg.thumbnail.jpg
Have you ever named a space mission? Well, here’s your chance. NASA announced today that they’re looking for help from the public to rename their upcoming Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope (GLAST) before it launches in mid-2008.

Think you’ve got a good idea for a name? Here’s what the mission’s going to be doing:

  • Explore the most extreme environments in the universe, where nature harnesses energies far beyond anything possible on Earth
  • Search for signs of new laws of physics and what composes the mysterious dark matter
  • Explain how black holes accelerate immense jets of material to nearly light speed
  • Help crack the mysteries of the stupendously powerful explosions known as gamma-ray bursts
  • Answer long-standing questions about a broad range of phenomena, including solar flares, pulsars and the origin of cosmic rays

So, come up with a name that’s very high-energy. Send in the name along with a statement of 25 words on why you like your idea to NASA’s “Name That Satellite”.

You’ve got until March 31, 2008, so get thinking.
