After receiving 28,000 pitches from students from across the country, NASA volunteer judges narrowed down the choices to nine final names for their next Mars Rover.

The names include Endurance, Tenacity, Promise, Perseverance, Vision, Clarity, Ingenuity, Fortitude and Courage.

There's currently an online poll where you can vote for your favorite. The votes will help NASA pick the winning name, which will be announced on March 15.
