Calling all aspiring young Mars explorers! Are you eager to explore the Red Planet someday? While NASA is still figuring out how to safely send astronauts to Mars, you can start practicing for your future mission to the Red Planet with a new line of Mars-themed playsets from PLAYMOBIL.
Space.com is giving away six PLAYMOBIL Mars Mission playsets to one lucky winner! For a chance to win, all you need to do is answer two quiz questions below before 12 a.m. EDT (0400 GMT) on July 24. The winner will receive:
- 1 Mars Space Station
- 1 Mission Rocket with Launch Site
- 1 Astronaut and Robot Duo Pack
- 1 Mars Research Vehicle
- 1 Satellite Meteoroid Laser
- 1 Mars Rover
With these playsets, you can launch little toy astronauts, robots and cargo to Mars on a rocket that lights up with realistic sound effects. Once they reach the Red Planet, they can set up camp inside the space station, which includes a small garden for growing crops. Take the rover for a spin to explore the neighborhood, and use the Mars Research Vehicle to collect some rock samples to take back to the lab for analysis. And just in case you encounter any hostile Martians or dangerous asteroids, these sets come equipped with plenty of laser blasters to keep the astronauts safe.
Below you'll find the entry form and official rules for this giveaway. Good luck, space fans!
