      MARS SURVEYOR 2001 SEEKS EYE-CATCHING LOGO DESIGN

      Two years from now NASA's newest spacecraft will be launched
      to Mars, but right now it is still missing one crucial detail: a
      mission logo. That's where you come in.

      The Mars Surveyor 2001 mission is sponsoring a contest to
      pick its new logo to illustrate the orbiter, lander and rover
      that will be the next visitors to Mars. "The logos can be done
      individually for the orbiter, lander and rover or incorporate all
      three aspects into one design. They can be any shape and color,
      and may include the spacecraft, the planet Mars, and/or the
      surface of Mars," said Cathy Davis, Mars Exploration Program
      outreach coordinator at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory,
      Pasadena, CA. "Anyone can enter. The designs must be eye-
      catching and should avoid small details that would be missed in a
      large format. Be creative!"

      The 2001 orbiter will be launched from California's
      Vandenberg Air Force Base -- the first launch of a planetary
      spacecraft from the west coast of the United States. A few weeks
      later the lander and rover will launch together from Cape
      Canaveral, FL. The lander will touch down near the Martian
      equator, carrying a spare Mars Pathfinder rover, a robotic arm
      and several other science instruments, including three that will
      return data in support of eventual human exploration.

      Entries for the logo contest are due June 30, 1999. Winners
      will be announced August 2.

      Mail entries to: Mars Outreach, Mail Stop 264-380, Jet
      Propulsion Laboratory, 4800 Oak Grove Drive, Pasadena, CA 91109.
      Entries may be emailed to catherine.l.davis@....
      Questions about the contest can be directed to Davis at (818)
      354-6111.

      The winner(s) will be acknowledged with a picture and
      biographical information posted by JPL on the Mars Surveyor
      2001's web site, and "will receive the prestige of seeing their
      creations on the spacecraft, products and documents," Davis said.

      JPL reserves the right to modify the winning designs to
      correct errors and/or to guarantee conformance with JPL graphics
      standards. Designs will be judged on style and content.
      Decisions of the judges are final. Designs become the property
      of JPL, and will not be returned.
