This post by futurist and technology entrepreneur Nova Spivack recounts the “legend of the Lost Lunar Library” in which an Israeli space mission crash lands on the moon but still manages to deliver “at least 60,000 pages of the Lunar Library safely.”
And according to Mr. Spivack, now that the “lunar library” is safely installed on the moon “every nation’s peoples, languages, cultures, history, art, science, literature, traditions, religions, poetry, beliefs, and greatest achievements are now preserved on the surface of the Moon for up to 5 billion years.”
