Phoenix Epitaph Contest

Posted by Ryan Anderson

Sad that Phoenix is on its way out? Want some cool NASA swag? Then head on over to Wired and submit an epitaph for Phoenix! If you win, you get official mission gear. Many of the sumbissions are great. I like:

” Will I Dream ? “

because I’m a sucker for sci-fi references (2001: A Space Odyssey), and:

Here lies One Whose Name was writ in Water

because of the dual literature (John Keats) and sci-fi (Hyperion) reference, plus the whole water-on-Mars thing.

Anyway, there are a lot of other good ones, so go take a look and submit your own!
