BOULDER, Colo. - April 28, 2016 - PRLog -- Space company Uwingu announced today a special campaign to honor moms for Mother's Day 2016 with place names on its Mars map or subscriptions to its daily emailed space image service.

Today through Mother's Day on May 8thth, Uwingu is offering decorative Mother's Day certificates for anyone choosing to honor a mom with a named crater on our Mars map. Two certificate options are available: an electronic downloadable version and a beautifully printed and framed keepsake version. Uwingu's Mars Map will be carried to Mars aboard both the first Mars One robotic lander and also on the Time Capsule to Mars Project. Orders for framed certificates must be made by May 2nd to ensure arrival by Mother's Day.

Said Uwingu's Ellen Butler, "A Mothers love is boundless, just like Space. I'm excited to name a crater on the Uwingu Mars map in honor of my biggest fan-my mother-at Mother's Day. This will make a wonderful and really unique gift for her!"

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

Dr. Alan Stern, Uwingu's CEO added, "Naming a Mars crater for mom is an out-of-this-world way to honor moms across the Earth with a magical connection to the universe. Help your mom join our MOM club-the Mothers on Mars club!  Or get her Uwingu's Daily Space Explorer space image service that sends email with a gorgeous, curated space image every day, along with an informative caption that makes 365 days of great brain food!"
