PRLog - Aug. 20, 2012 - NIWOT, Colo. -- Uwingu, a space-themed, for profit start up company, applauds NASA and its planetary science community for the successful landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars earlier this month.
Uwingu to Support Mars Research & Education
Saluting that achievement, Uwingu announces today that in our first Announcement of Opportunity (AO), we will seek proposals that fund Mars researchers and educators—increasing what can be done above the levels NASA can support.

Uwingu’s launch project is already built. Through the IndieGoGo crowd-funding web site, Uwingu is now engaged in a campaign to raise money for Internet and other business costs it will incur when early sales operations begin.
