    Default What book would you leave on the moon?

    I just this night found out that the first astronaut to use the lunar rover left a book on the dash so that future lunar explorers would know who had been there, it was a red leather bible apparently (probably some Cold War connotation to that) anyway, what book would you leave?

    I can only leave one?!

    Hmmm

    Higurashi When They Cry: Demon Exposing Arc

    Or maybe

    Crime And Punishment


    So hard to decide.

    Interesting story though, I wonder what else people have left on the moon.

    The God Delusion, by Dawkins. Right next to the bible. Hmm, perhaps on top.

    The moon is a too huge trabant for Earths size. Its mass is influencing our tidal forces and therefore slowing down Earth rotation. At some point the Earth will always show the same side to the moon, while the other side wont see the Moon no more at all. According to the law of the sutainment of angular movement the moon will be further away from the Earth then, than it is today. Because the Moons mass being too big, the Earth will prolly then not be able no more to hold the Moon and will loose it.

    So dont drop stuff on the Moon !

    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...

    No seriously...

    Carl Sagan's Cosmos would be a good one, but it's hard to choose just one book to cover the whole of human cultures.... might need a weighted down version of Encyclopedia Britannica or something.

    The Voynich manuscript. There are more useful things to spend time and money on.

    I'd want to leave something that would indicate how much we know at the point when I would be landing on the moon. I don't know if such a book exists but I could fill some pages of a notebook and leave it for them. It might make them appreciate any progress they would have made in the time between my landing and theirs.

    That or "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" or an ereader with a lot of books inside.

    Edit: The ereader will have the best batteries..and probably solar-charging capabilities.

    Its a pop up book!


    I wouldn't just leave our world's intelligence out there for anyone to stumble upon, unless they show me theirs first.

    Erm, I changed my mind. I'd spare the book and let the bible get fried alone.
