Humankind’s curiosity when exploring outer space has led us to send some of the most unusual objects to Space, whether it is to experiment how they react during spaceflight or to send out a signal to potential life in the universe of our existence.
- Musical instruments: Music is so intrinsic to humankind that it did not take long for astronauts to take their favorite instruments with them into space after their initial missions. The first instruments believed to have been flown into space were a harmonica and bell on Gemini 6 in December 1965.
- Voyager's Golden Records: During the 70’s, astronomer Carl Sagan had the idea of sending out two phonograph records containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth, intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form to find them - some sort of time capsule from humankind.
- Luke Skywalker's lightsaber: As Star Wars inspired generations of sci-fi fans to become astronomers up until today, it was a matter of time until astronaut Jim F. Reilly took The lightsaber that Luke Skywalker (played by actor Mark Hammill) into space and back in 2007.
- Pizza delivery: In 2001, Pizza Hut became the first company to make a delivery into space to the International Space Station - a delivery that was worth one million dollars. However, slight changes to the recipe had to be made for it to survive the trip, such as using salami instead of pepperoni as the latter did not withstand the 60-day testing process.
- Cars: In 2018, SpaceX founder Elon Musk took his Tesla car to float in space as it blasted David Bowie's "Life on Mars" on repeat as it traveled through space. The car is still orbiting around the sun, with some predicting it will crash into Venus or Earth a few tens of millions of years from now.
If it were up to you, what would you send to outer space in your time capsule?
