Glasgow on Mars?

August 4, 2009

NASA is honouring the contribution made by Glasgow University on the Red Planet by using Scottish names on features discovered by the roaming explorer Opportunity. So far, Glasgow is the only one to be so named. Traditionally, NASA names areas on other worlds after people and places. So Glasgow is joining such illustrious names on Mars as, Darth Vader and Yogi Bear and Scooby-Doo. (2005) (www.rampartscotland.com 2005)
