Lunar Mission One is offering to send your digital memory (or even your DNA) to the moon to be stored for a billion years.By Cliff Judy | November 19, 2014
An ambitious space project hopes the idea of preserving a piece of yourself in the cosmos for millennia is enough to get you to invest.
Lunar Mission One, which dubs itself "the most inspirational Moon project since the Apollo landings," wants to raise nearly $1 million on Kickstarter over the next month with plans to drill into the moon's surface.
RICHARD HOLDAWAY, DIRECTOR OF RAL SPACE: "There's a lot of science that's been carried out on the moon, but never below the surface. ... Because it has to drill down to be able to bring out core samples, it's going to put something back in." (Video via Lunar Mission One)
