Haiku Message to Mars From You


Do you live on planet Earth and have a poetic streak? Well, here’s the chance of a lifetime, even if you are a terrible poet. Write up a haiku poem to Mars, submit it to the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission (MAVEN), and voilà, your name will be on a DVD flying to Mars with the MAVEN. If you’re one of the top three that win the public vote, your whole haiku poem will be sent to Mars. Deadline is July 1st, 2013. Public voting starts July 15.

NPR’s Dave Mittingly has a pretty inspiring one:

Mars, you planet red
No life, just craters and ice
Dark, dark, dark, dark, goose

Here’s mine:

A little message
from the Blue Planet to you
we are on our way

Eat your heart out Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz.
Happy haiku-ing everyone!
