In addition to the Robotic Moon Race that X Prize announced yesterday, they are also going to start the Lunar Legacy Program. The program will allow regular geeks like you and me to upload a 1MB image and a quick note that will then be copied onto a 17GB DVD and placed on one of the spacecraft heading toward the moon. (The upload will cost you $10.) Once it completes the journey to the moon, it will be left on the moons. Hopefully, the aliens that find the disc won't be using some advanced version of a cassette player. [Wired]
