The student competition to name the Node 2 module of the International Space Station has begun. NASA Education, which is responsible for the competition, is running the contest via an existing program called NASA Exploring Space Challenges (ESC).
Information on the Node 2 Challenge, including rules and schedules, can be found at the NASA ESC Web site: http://esc.nasa.gov/html_files/NameNode2.html
The competition is being conducted during the fall 2006 semester. Deadline for classes/schools to register for the competition is Nov. 17, with entries due Dec. 1.
The name will be selected from the submitted entries early in 2007. NASA Headquarters senior management will be involved in the final name selection.
Please help spread the word about the Node 2-naming student competition so that we have lots of entries from which to choose the name for the International Space Station Node 2.
