Thank You


Boulder - Colorado - US


BOULDER, Colo. - June 8, 2015 - PRLog -- Space company Uwingu announced today a new way to say thanks you with place names on its Mars map. Uwingu’s Mars Map will be carried to Mars aboard the first Mars One robotic lander.

Beginning today Uwingu is offering special, decorative Thank You certificates for anyone. Two certificate options are available: an electronic downloadable version and a beautifully printed and framed keepsake version.

Prices for naming craters depend on the size of the crater, and begin at $5. Half of Uwingu’s revenues go to fund the Uwingu Fund for space research and education grants.

Said Uwingu’s Ellen Butler, “Never before could people send such an out of this world thank you note—say a thank you from Mars, and people will never forget it!”

Uwingu’s Mars Map Crater Naming Project at allows anyone to help name approximately 590,000 unnamed, scientifically cataloged craters on Mars. Uwingu’s Mars map grandfathers in all the already named craters on Mars, but opens the remainder up for naming by people around the globe.

Dr. Alan Stern, Uwingu’s CEO added, “We’re taking Thank You’s to a whole new level—to Mars!”
