    The guys over at the Arch Mission, that sent a series of science fiction books into space on Falcon Heavy's Tesla, are at it again. This time the foundation is sending out a library full of Wikipedia entries into the depths of space in 2020, but this time only as far as our moon.
    This time they are sending it in the form of tiny little etched pages.


    Astrobotic will carry the Lunar Library to the Moon on its Peregrine Lunar Lander and store it on the lunar surface. Astrobotic’s inaugural lunar mission is set for launch in 2020 and will include a manifest of payloads from governments, companies, universities, non-profits, and individuals.

    The Lunar Library consists of a set of tens of millions of pages of text and images stored as analog microfiche on thin sheets of nickel. Each page is etched by laser at 300,000 dpi using patented nanolithography technology provided exclusively to the Arch Mission Foundation by Stamper Technology. The content of the Library can easily be read via a 1000x magnification optical microscope, without needing a computer. Nickel is impervious to radiation as well as the changing temperatures on the Moon, and can last for millions to billions of years in space.

    Well, if you like a quiet library to read in, I suppose you can't beat this one.

    If extraterrestial life ever reads those Wikipedia pages they will probably kill us all out of pity.

    "Nickel is impervious to radiation" ummm no. Someone took something out of context, or paraphrased a bit to much.

    How short sighted are these loons? Engraved wiki articles? Puulleeeeaaase. Why not take the time to send up the entire internet? Give extraterrestrial life truly something great to review, and plus - no viruses on their virgin hardware because they will be offline while viewing it!

    Space is on the most important planks in the formation of a one world economy and religion. Many Jesuit trained leaders continue to push the narrative via news and movies.

    Reagan


    All your leaders, media, Hollywood due two types of signs, watch for it.


    For proof of space they point to permed or sprayed hair or flips.


    NASA does not train in a vacuum as no fabric can remain pliable when its inside pressure is 6psi
    and the outside vacuum in 10 -17th torr.

    I wonder when they will implement the commandments from the Georgia Guide Stones.

    Anyone else picturing a certain space faring Tesla making a much more spectacular reentry and the dummy behind the wheel muttering, " Oh! Not again!"?

    I remember reading an article once that Wikipedia on average had the same rate of errors as true encyclopedias.

    You mean the historical documents?

    I wonder what they'd think about Ancient Aliens.

    The neighbors are not that great though. I would prefer something in the next galaxy over.

    I hope they didn't send the Wikipedia page about people that thinks the Earth is flat or the one about the face in Mars

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_flat_Earth_societies
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cydonia_(region_of_Mars)#"Face_on_Mars"_and_"pyramids"

    Once I saw an article saying me that heat and temperature was the same. Never saw such huge mistake in any other mistake or book, not even for kids.

    Also I never saw elsewhere a Batman entry like this
