Arkyd Motto Contest

To Boldy Go Where No Motto Has Gone Before
The Planetary Society – ARKYD Motto Campaign

Bill Nye and the ARYKD Team need your help!

Up at ARKYD headquarters, Bill Nye was reminding Chris Lewicki, of Planetary Resources, about the cool motto's for both MarsDials (Chris was Flight Director for both Spirit and Opportunity when he previously worked for NASA, and many engineers on his team helped build Curiosity).

"Two Worlds - One Sun," on Spirit and Opportunity and “To Mars – To Explore.,” aboard Curiosity.

"Hey" said Bill, "The ARKYD needs a motto. We can help you with that."

"Heck ya!" said Chris. "That is a fantastic idea."

So, Planetary Society Members, we want your ideas!

if you are a Member of The Planetary Society we want  your suggestions for a motto for ARKYD, the first publicly accessible space telescope! Come back beginning July 20, 2013 to find out about our new contest and to find out the great prizes for the winners!

It is going to be fun!
