You can help choose a haiku to fly to Mars in an unmanned spacecraft, part of NASA’s historic MAVEN mission. Follow this link to read and vote on your favorite haiku to send into space.
The Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) mission, scheduled for launch in late 2013, will be the first mission devoted to understanding the Martian upper atmosphere. The goal of MAVEN is to determine the role that loss of atmospheric gas to space played in changing the Martian climate through time. Where did the atmosphere—and the water—go?
As of this writing, this was the most popular haiku to send to Mars:
miles of whispering welcome.
Mars, you called us home.
