You can send something to the Moon, for free! I'm creating a Lunar time capsule via Reddit - Sending up to 10mb of data to the Moon for up to 100,000 people!

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • Sonar - Write Clean C++ Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Godot

    Godot Engine – Multi-platform 2D and 3D game engine

    The engine is under an MIT open source licence, which basically means you can do anything with it, but without any warranty. The full source code can be found here

  • DOOM

    DOOM Open Source Release

    You could send the source code for doom. Here's the github link:

  • Sonar

  • Bitcoin

    Bitcoin Core integration/staging tree

  • n-gage

    Shared developer and build tools for applications and components

    could you clone this repository and add it please: i work on it, it's bad, we're rewriting it, i want to tell my team we launched it to the fucking moon

  • GraphRedex

    An interactive semantics explorer (2.4M)

  • Apollo-11

    Original Apollo 11 Guidance Computer (AGC) source code for the command and lunar modules.

    Please add this for me. It's part of the source code for Apollo 11's launch sequence, aptly named "BURN_BABY_BURN--MASTER_IGNITION_ROUTINE.agc"


    a recurrent network trained to draw dicks

    I wish we could have sent this as well:

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • linux

    Linux kernel source tree

    u/Valphon, this is great! I'd like to send the GPL Licence of Linux to the moon, which is written in here, but to long for reddit: It is: 359 lines 18.3 KB and can you add (Manuel was here) was here at the end?

  • youtube-dl

    Command-line program to download videos from and other video sites

    This goes beyond your scope of media, but what about the source code of influential software? Youtube-DL's source code is 2MB, Tor Browser is 7.4MB, Linux kernal 1.0 is 1.5MB (the latest is 220MB). There's of course many more, but these ones come to mind first.

  • OpenSkyStacker

    Multi-platform stacker for deep-sky astrophotography.

    I'd like to contribute the source code for OpenSkyStacker, an astrophotography tool I made. I'm compressed it into a zip file that's 5MB:

  • midimonster

    Multi-protocol control & translation software (ArtNet, MIDI, OSC, sACN, ...)

    Please send up a copy of the MIDIMonster source code, you can find it at

  • microwatt

    See for a description

  • moon-pack

    A collection of games in about 10 MB, intended to be sent to the moon

    I'd like to send my "art": a collection of 21 of my browser web games to the moon. I compiled them all here and they're less than 10 MB unzipped.

  • moon

    Hey Valphon, great initiative! Could you send the following file for me?
