Send a message or photo to space in an asteroid time capsule #AsteroidMission #space
NASA’s mission to the asteroid BENNU is accepting photos and messages for a time capsule that will be aboard the spacecraft!
The OSIRIS-REx team invites the public to send messages in a time capsule aboard their spacecraft launching in 2016. The mission will collect short statements and images about Solar System exploration – today and predictions for the next decade – to seal in a time capsule. After the spacecraft travels to Bennu and back, mission managers will open the time capsule in 2023 to check on the predictions.
Using Twitter and Instagram try to predict how we will be communicating in a decade and where we will be in the Solar System.
Think about what we are doing in Solar System exploration in 2014 and what we might be doing in 2023,
Tweet your statement with hashtag #AsteroidMission or
Tag OSIRIS-REx on Instagram with hashtag #AsteroidMission to share your ideas as a graphic or photo.
Posts can be about science, engineering, technology or other subjects related to space exploration today and in 2023.
