The name I have decided for the Mars 2020 rover should be Fortitude. Defined as: courage in difficulties or misfortune, this reflects how space travel is challenging for our planet. To launch a rover to Mars, or even a satellite into orbit is a very challenging endeavor and to name the rover something that shows that we as humans are strong and can push through whatever challenges and adversity that comes our way and to make such scientific discoveries is what fortitude is about. This name also shows we are taking actions for our scientific research as we are taking risks and not just idly watching as we are finding out more about the solar system and the universe that surrounds us. Therefore, as a testament to our spacefaring wishes and dreams, the name for the Mars 2020 rover should be Fortitude.
