National Planetary Exploration Car Wash & Bake Sale

How many cupcakes do you have to sell to fund a scientific mission to Mars? Organizer Alan Stern of the Southwest Research Institute doesn’t expect to fund space exploration via cookies and car washes. He does hope to build interest in planetary science and awareness of NASA budget cuts and the need to repair them across the country on Jun 9th, as PhDs at 20-30 institutions offer up their best baked goods and wash your car. Watch this site and if you are at or near one of the participating institutions – you might want to drop by on June 9th to support the cause – or just get your car washed by a rocket scientist.
