I was just reading about tardigrades
the other day, courtesy of John Naughton's blog
, and today, someone on a Slack instance posted this amazingly weird news that an Israeli lunar lander crashed on the moon
, leaving tardigrades and human knowledge records.
The tardigrades are encased in resin, though. Also, I have doubts that any non-human will be able to understand the language lessons in the records or even use knowledge the way we do.
This, I didn't know, though:
In fact, Spivack isn’t even the first to leave DNA on the moon. This honor belongs to the Apollo astronauts, who left nearly 100 bags of human feces on the lunar surface before they returned to Earth.
Those guys did a lot of poopin'!
