Tesla Mosaic which contained thousands of photos, images, and sketches is now traveling towards an unknown destiny in space.
Tesla did not only send this collection of visual human memories into space but some customers with 25 or more referral wins were able to send the data of their choice to be sent as well. This data was saved on a memory card and put into a metal case that Tesla refers to as Time Capsules.
This unique payload of human data from our planet Earth was sent to space on a Falcon 9 rocket aboard the Korean Pathfinder Lunar Orbiter (KPLO) mission on 4th August 2022.
Tesla laser-etched the photo chosen by the referral prize winners onto the mosaic that was later on sent into space.
The huge amount of visual data on the mosaic and information stored in many Time Capsule data storage cards might help aliens understand human life on Earth. Although these SD cards are stored in safe metal cases, it’s not known how long they can survive the harsh conditions in deep space and data remains intact on these devices.
Tesla posted a short video of this unique endeavor that any automotive company has ever undertaken — making the photos and memories of its customers live in space for eternity.
Let’s see what Tesla has to say and the reactions that its customers posted on Twitter after the Tesla Mosaic and Time Capsules were sent to space.
