OWC Helps Put Storage Disk onto Moon

2024-02-15

...Odysseus is carrying several payloads—some of which belong to NASA and some of which are commercial payloads. Inside one of those commercial payloads is a special data storage disk made with help from the folks here at OWC.

Made with support from OWC, the storage disk aboard Odysseus is a small 15-layer nickel stack microfiche time capsule made by space archival storage company NanoFiche in coordination with Galactic Legacy Labs subsidiary Lunaprise. 

The disk contains much of humanity’s knowledge, songs, and messages from more than 1 million people called “Lunagrams.” It is designed to survive for millions of years on the lunar surface, preserving a record of human life on Earth. You can read more about the IM-1 mission here.
