Inspiration is a spark, sitting inside all of us, waiting for a chance to ignite. Inspiration is a powerful force, sometimes stretching beyond our imaginations.

It is quite often what moves us forward in life—people want to inspire others, or strive to become like whatever inspires them. Inspiration is part of all peoples’ minds and is one of the things that shape them. The space program launched Apollo 11 around fifty years ago. That was inspiring for everyone involved. This rover will do some inspiring things too.

And what is this contest for, if not to inspire young kids to learn about space, and to eventually, perhaps, come to NASA, and help explore space? Inspiration should be the name of the next Mars rover.
