THE LEO LIBRARY: CONSTELLATION 1 (SPACECHAIN, 2018)
In Earth Orbit.
In partnership with SpaceChain, the Arch Mission Foundation delivered a copy of the English Wikipedia into low-Earth orbit (“LEO”), in October of 2018.
The LEO Library, is part of the Arch Mission’s Billion Year Archive™ initiative, which seeks to fill the solar system with indelible records of human civilization.
SpaceChain’s cubesat contains a blockchain node and is the first of a constellation of interplanetary blockchain nodes the organization plans to launch, with a goal to provide decentralized data synchronization and transactional infrastructure across the solar system.
Within the SpaceChain cubesat is a solid-state Arch Library™ containing the Wikipedia in a protected compartment. SpaceChain and the Arch Mission Foundation will continue to send and synchronize copies of the Arch Mission libraries across the solar system in coming years.
