Thumbs up Vote for Anne!

NASA are looking for names with which to name places on the worlds that will be mapped by the New Horizons spacecraft. One of the names on that list is Anne McCaffrey!! I just voted. The vote closes on Friday. Sorry for the last minute notice, but it was only just brought to my attention myself.

Here is the link:

Voted.

I was a bit confused that she wasn't on the first page, but it's a 3 page poll thing, so if you don't see her on the first, choose some entries (shouldn't be hard to do!) and move to the next.

I chose Anne McCaffrey, but also Octavia Butler. Both should be remembered/honored for their work.

There are four different votes: Fictional explorers and travellers, Fictional origins and destinations (why no Pern?!), Fictional vessels and then (finally) Fictional writers. Anne is in the last vote, but you have to step through the others to get to it.

You are supposed to be limited to one vote per day, but I discovered if you kill all the cookies stored on your PC it will let you vote again.

I guess Pern isn't in the vote because they are saving that name for when the GAIA spacecraft discovers a planet orbiting around Rukbat...
