The Israeli company SpaceIL’s probe would land on the moon in April, writing it as the first privately-owned spacecraft to successfully land on the moon. However, shortly before the planned landing, control lost control and Beresheet crashed into the moon.
Now, Wired has written that it is not at all certain that his moon career has ended, as he seems to have left something permanent on the moon. Beresheet shipped DVD-based media for the first lunar library, which holds 30 million pages of information, including human DNA samples and loads of bears. These are microscopic-sized animals that can survive almost anywhere. After the accident, the question was whether they could survive the impact.
Nova Spivack is working for the Arch Mission Foundation, which is determined to find a planet that can serve as a proper Plan B if it lands on Earth. He watched a live broadcast from Los Angeles, and after the Israeli company confirmed that their probe had been destroyed, he and his team began studying what could have happened to the data, human DNA, and bear animals.
After the spacecraft’s orbit, the structure and material of the DVD-sized library, and after the impact recordings and subsequent analysis, the team is convinced that the media has survived the impact or has only minimal damage, meaning that data can be recovered. Spivack, by the way, is not unfamiliar with the creation of a space library, he was the one who put a similar medium in Elon Musk’s Tesla before the Tesla Roadster was shot into space to circulate there until the end of time, but for at least a year.
Pendrive in space?
The serious question is how to keep this data for posterity, since a few decades ago the floppy was considered the king of data carriers, but today it is quite difficult to find a person with such a drive. Therefore, the most time-consuming solution is still analog storage, but it takes up a lot of space. To solve this, Spivack commissioned a researcher called Bruce Ha who can engrave high-quality nickel on nickel using a special technique. Thus, the aforementioned 30 million pages of information made them available on 25 very thin nickel inserts, which will be able to be viewed again under microscopes, as they will probably be here in thousands of years, as optical zoom technology has been present every day for hundreds of years. .

Spavick sent DNA samples of his own and 24 other colleagues into space, assuring everyone he selected candidates based on ethnic and biological diversity, but also sending DNA from sacred places to the moon, such as Bodhifa in India. And he put thousands of bear animals in the pack, which he also intended to protect the nickel tile.
According to Spivack, the package could have survived even if the casing was damaged, as he said the heat effect did not damage the nickel sheets, but even if they were broken, data could still be recovered. Even more exciting is the question of what happened to the thousands of bear animals? Have humans managed to populate the moon with a new species? Spivack claims that bear animals cannot populate the moon, though they can dehydrate for up to 10 years before they can be brought back to life, but the researcher says there is no cause for concern.
