NASA offered a chance of immortality on the moon to thousands of people.
Recently, NASA announced a New Lunar Mission that will take place in the next 10 years. The primary purpose of this mission is to land a robotic probe on the moon. The robotic probe will determine whether scientist can set up human base on the moon or not.
The agency intends to raise £500m through public donations for this particular project. The people who donate money for the new mission would be allowed to incorporate their sample hair, photos and text in a time capsule. Later on, NASA will bury that time capsule under the lunar surface.
The board of researchers utilized Kickstarter for the collection of money. Kickstarter is a global fundraising platform which promises to give life to creative projects. The first stage of fund raising will begin in the next few weeks.
However, NASA has fixed different price rate, according to the thing. For instance, a short message will cost a few pounds, whereas as a compressed video will cost $200.
A few of the really well known researchers such as Prof Monica Grady, the Astronomer Royal Lord Rees and Prof Brain Cox will support the plan.
David Iron, the head of this project notified that this time government authorities would not be able to fund the space mission. Therefore, scientists requested the public to contribute to the Lunar Mission One. The mission will provide really significant information regarding the origin of Earth and the moon.
