Uwingu’s CEO and founder Dr. Alan Stern, commented, “We are excited and proud to be working with Astronomy Magazine, their publisher Kalmbach Publishing, and their sister magazine Discover. Together we will be working together now to get the word out about Uwingu’s web site, products, and objectives. Our launch product provides a whole new way for the people of Earth, of every age, of every nation, of every walk of life to creatively connect to space by nominating names for planets across the galaxy! You can nominate names after your favorite town, state, or country, your favorite sports team, music artist, or hero, your favorite author or book, your school, your company, for your loved ones and friends, or even for yourself. Anything at all! You can even tell your friends about the names you nominate, so they can help vote them to the top of our most popular planet names list! It’s fun, it’s social, and it’s for a great cause.”
Astronomy magazine’s Karri Ferron added, “The staff of Astronomy magazine, along with its sister publication, Discover, is excited to partner with Uwingu to help fund space research and education. The products Uwingu offers invite a more diverse audience to participate in science, which is a core mission of both magazines, and the payoff is a better understanding of our cosmos through their Uwingu's proceeds."
