Lunar DNA Archive Devised

An enterprising new space business venture looks to turn the moon into a veritable DNA repository and time capsule for its customers on Earth. Dubbed Lunar Mission One, the company would charge patrons around $75 to have a DNA sample as well as a strand of hair and a digital documentation of their life buried in an underground archive on the moon. Unfortunately, the massive scope of the project remains theoretical at this time, because such a journey to the moon would require nearly $800 million dollars to complete. More on the story at New Scientist and animation of the proposed lunar DNA delivery can be seen below.
