A Greek school in Athens has teamed up with Galactic Legacy Labs LL to be the first in the world to send material to the moon during the next unmanned mission of Space X.
The Moraitis School is involved in this world-first after it launched a new education program on space education, called Moraitis Moon Landing. The program began in late January and will continue until the end of March.
“The aim of the curriculum is to introduce students to the historical, scientific, technological and philosophical aspects of space exploration,” the school said in a statement on their website.
“Children through individual and group work, creative exercises, presentations and discussions will become familiar with scientific concepts and will refer to skills that are necessary for space exploration such as mental resilience and ingenuity.”
Galactic Legacy Labs, through the “Lunarprise program,” has invested in the next unmanned mission of Space X to the Moon and has the right to leave there a small “ark” recorded on nickel microdisks containing information from the earth (texts, images, personal testimonies).
“The Moraitis School has secured the right to send material with this mission… So we begin our journey to the Moon and the wonderful and mysterious world of space!”
