Space Art DNA Time Capsule
Space Art DNA Time Capsule serves as the Pioneer Plaque of the 21st Century, featuring crowd-sourced drawings created by individuals from around the world. Drawn images represent a visual message to space, reflecting life on Earth and our collective role as Citizens of the Future. This vast collection of drawings is encoded into DNA, nature’s oldest and most resilient storage device. The DNA is encased in a minuscule, lightweight capsule built for spaceflight. Space Art DNA Time Capsule will be launched to Low Earth Orbit aboard a rocket or satellite by 2023. This is our Earth’s record of life to reflect present day and communicate to future generations.
