Pioneering Mars One project have announced that all their missions are going to carry Uwingu's Mars Map, and will use these feature names as a part of Mars One's mission operations at the Red Planet.


Additionally, a portion of Uwingu's revenues generated by Mars feature naming will help fund Mars One missions.

The goal of this project is to create 10 million dollars in Uwingu grant funds to space projects such as Mars One, to space researchers, and to space educators.

Uwingu founder and CEO Dr. Alan Stern, a planetary scientist and the former head of NASA's science programs said that this partnership catapults Uwingu's Mars crater naming database and Mars maps into the forefront of Mars exploration.

Stern said that every person who names craters on Mars will now know that their crater names are to be used in the exploration and eventual settlement of Mars.

Bas Lansdorp, Mars One Co-Founder and CEO said, "Uwingu gives everyone around the world the opportunity to participate in space exploration. The name you choose will go down in history, travelling on board our 2018 mission lander and will be used by our future astronauts. What an amazing opportunity!"
