Philippine Artists and Authors On a Time Capsule to the Moon

The works of nine major Philippine creative artists are on a time capsule headed for the Moon later this year. Part of the Lunar Codex project headed by Philippine-Canadian physicist and author Dr. Samuel Peralta, the time capsule, which holds the work of over 1500 artists from all over the world, is joining NASA’s payloads in the first phase of its Artemis program to land the first astronauts on the Moon in 50 years.

“Our hope is that future travelers who find this capsule will discover some of the richness of our world today.  It speaks to the idea that, despite wars and pandemics and climate upheaval, humankind found time to dream, time to create art.”
