We use advanced biochemistry to extract your DNA as a solid powder. You then get preserved in artificial amber—a polymer inspired by nature.
Your DNA then goes in a capsule made by our partners at Arch Mission. Included is a biosphere biobank with DNA from many species and a knowledge archive including all of Wikipedia. It's a backup of Earth.
Our first rocket launch is scheduled for 2021 on a ULA Vulcan rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida. We plan yearly launches after that on commercial landers shared with NASA. You’ll watch live for blast off and landing.
You'll track your spacecraft as it slings into lunar orbit. You descend to the Moon on the Peregrine lander by Astrobotic. You'll watch live as you touch down near the North Pole of the Moon. You then stay forever.
What will it get used for?
Perhaps our descendants will carry the capsule, and your genetic code, with them when they set sail for the stars. When humanity leaves the solar system in search of another world we'll take with us the genetic code of our home planet.
