Don’t miss your chance to make it to the Moon! From now through February 28, 2019, Moon Township residents, businesses, and organizations can send a photo or document to be included in the Moon Township Moon Museum that will be deposited on the surface of the Moon onboard a rocket being launched in early 2020. This project is in collaboration with Pittsburgh-based Astrobotic Technologies and Louisville-based Project Mora. Upload your files here and pay a small fee of $2.50 to get on board. Proceeds will fund the township’s 2019 effort to place military banners around town and honor our fallen veterans.
Files are contributed digitally through the form below. Upon the year’s end, all contributions will be stored in a radiation-shielded digital archive as part of Project Mora’s Lunar Moon museum. From there, the archive will be integrated into Astrobotic’s lunar lander being developed in Pittsburgh. In 2020, the lander will make its way up to the Moon on board a United Launch Alliance Atlas-V rocket. Upon landing, the lander, and the contributions contained within, will stay on the Moon indefinitely – waiting to be discovered by future explorers.
