Send Your Art to the Moon

From Mental Floss

Moon Drawings is a project created as part of the Moon Arts Group, an initiative at Carnegie Mellon University. Through May 7, anyone can sketch a drawing on the group’s website, and the drawings will then be etched into a 39mm sapphire disc as part of a sculpture called theMoon Arts Ark. Once it’s loaded into the sculpture, your drawing will be rocketed to the moon aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket sometime in 2016.
