Welcome to the Uwingu Archive

Uwingu’s mission was to create new ways for people to personally connect with space exploration and astronomy.

All fundraising campaigns were closed in 2017. We are keeping this site running as an archive for those who participated in our campaigns.

The People's Map of Mars

Between February 26, 2014 and May 15, 2017 people all around the world helped name craters on Uwingu’s Mars map that will become landmarks to future explorers!

Exoplanet Names

The first planet discovered outside our solar system is named “PSR 81257+12 B”. Not so catchy, is it?

Uwingu sought public input for names that are more human friendly. The result is our database of planet names, with contributions from around the world.
