The Mars Millennium Project is a national arts, science and technology
initiative that challenges students across the country to design a community
on Mars. Sponsors include NASA and its Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the
National Endowment for the Arts, the U.S. Department of Education, the
J. Paul Getty Trust, and the White House Millennium Council. The project
is the premiere youth initiative of the White House Millennium Council,
a multi-year effort to mark the end of the 20th century and the beginning
of a new millennium. The project was launched nationally on January
14 by First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and featured in Secretary Richard
Riley's May 1999 US Department of Education Satellite Town Meeting.
