Being the best poet on Earth is great and all, but what if you could take your talents into space? NASA isn’t handing out spacesuits, but to commemorate the upcoming launch of the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution spacecraft, its Going to Mars project will allow three lucky poets to send their haikus to Mars. Set to launch this November, the MAVEN will be studying Mars’ atmosphere (or lack thereof) and will carry with it the haikus of the winners–and the name of anyone who enters!
The rules are pretty simple: participants 18 years old and older are allowed to create a log-in email profile while children are encouraged to seek the help of an adult or a teacher. So, go forth! Make art and have it shot into the stars! Not a poet? Don’t fret. Never wrote a poem in life? No worries. Unable to read, write, or speak? Well, that could be a problem.
