"I look at the full moon tonight with more wonder thanks to you." - Nadja

How does my DNA get to the Moon?

You launch on a rocket shared with a dozen NASA missions. We’ve partnered with Arch Mission, a non-profit dedicated to preserving the knowledge and biology of our planet. Your DNA goes in a Arch capsule and scheduled for launch on a United Launch Alliance rocket out of Cape Canaveral, Florida in 2021. The rocket delivers the Astrobotic Peregrine lander to lunar orbit. You get to watch live for landing. Your DNA then stays on the Moon forever.

What else will my DNA get used for?

Your DNA gets preserved in a time capsule for the future. We won’t sequence your DNA, sell your DNA, give out your DNA, or otherwise use your DNA. It’s safe. We take your privacy seriously.

What about contaminating space bodies? Is this legal?

We care deeply about protecting space! Your DNA is an inert molecule and we store it in a sterilized capsule following standard space protocols. This mission is legal according to international space agreements. NASA recently updated Planetary Protection policies and cleared biological missions to anywhere on the Moon except the permanently shadowed icy regions.

How long will my DNA last? What about radiation?

The capsule has radiation shielding and contains thousands of copies of your DNA. It will degrade over time but even fragments can be pieced back together. Scientists have decoded Woolly Mammoth and Neanderthal DNA by reassembling tiny fragments using existing technology. We estimate it'll be recoverable for about 10,000 years. It may not be eternity, but it's a start.

How does my DNA get stored?

Your DNA gets extracted from your cells. It gets added to a biobank of DNA from other species and humans to form the genetic blueprint of Earth. The DNA all gets preserved in an artificial amber polymer. All DNA is stored together for miniaturization. Scientists can isolate and decode DNA from combined samples using existing technology.

How do I know it happened? What do I get to see from the mission?

You’ll see each step of the mission — from how the DNA is processed to the final landing. You'll get explorer updates and videos about the mission throughout the whole journey. You’ll see how the DNA gets processed. You’ll see how it is stored. You’ll see it on the lander and watch the rocket. You’ll get to watch live for launch and landing. 

What if the rocket blows up?

Space is hard. Rockets do explode. If you don’t make it to the Moon then you’ll go again on our next mission for free.

What could my DNA be used for?

None of us will know. This capsule is designed for the far future. Perhaps it will be retrieved after an asteroid strike to repopulate Earth. Perhaps it is found by another civilization and used to understand Earth as it is today. Or maybe it could be caried by our descendants to the stars and used to seed a new world. We just won’t know. We believe it is worth saving our genetic blueprints for the future.

Why go on the LifeShip?

You get to go on a space mission and send a piece of you where few have been. You save your family’s genes for the future and leave a forever legacy among the stars. You'll look at the Moon for the rest of your life with a new sense of wonder. Your loved ones get a connection to you through the Moon.

Preservation

I'm not having children. LifeShip is an opportunity for me to have my total DNA preserved for at least 10,000 years. The cost is absolutely minimal compared to the return-on-investment as far as I'm concerned. While I- in my lifetime- may not 'slip the surly bonds of earth', I can rest assured knowing my DNA did not 'go gentle into that good night'. And, who knows-- perhaps some future moon-bound earthling will find my DNA and decide to discover the rest of me in history. Or, perhaps some civilization not of this earth will clone thousands of me. The possibilities are endless! The process was very easy. Having recently done a DNA profile with another company, the difference I noticed with LifeShip is that the preservation fluid went directly into the saliva. The other company's does not and made a big mess. This gives me confidence LifeShip will do all they can to preserve my DNA and get it safely to the moon. Thanks!

So excited about this!

My husband and I normally travel, and with Covid we have been unable to do so this year and possibly next year as well. As a lover of space, I saw this and thought it was a fantastic way for us to go on a trip like none other! Can't wait till lift off!!!

Ok overall

Need to increase attention to detail, they misspelled my name when they wrote a customize letter by hand.

I'm already there (in my head)

Very easy to use- includes simple instructions and mailing labels. Even an earthling can manage.

Our generation will make it to the next planet

I’m excited about going on the lifeship because we live in the generation that might make it to the next planet. We are branching out so far into the thing we are born of to discover it and we’ve hardly scratched the surface. Anything to contribute to that is something significant to me.

Something that's bigger than all of us!

This is so totally different than any other gift I have ever received, being a part of something that's bigger than all of us. It amazes me every day to look to the sky and wonder what and where are we headed.
