small country, big dreams

Today the Beresheet spacecraft, containing the Arch Mission Foundation Lunar Library, descended towards the Moon, where it crashed.

The Lunar Library contained one of my projects, “A Brief History of Archiving Civilization,” including an essay, societal and astronomical records to mark the epoch, excerpts from the Westinghouse Time Capsule and Voyager Golden Record, data from Earth Tapestry, and a small collection of poems.

I hope SpaceIL is able to marshal the resources for another go. They came so close. Space is hard.
