THE SOLAR LIBRARY - Tesla Orbiter (SPACEX, 2018)

The first library in space.


Check the Glovebox.
The Arch Mission Foundation’s Solar Library, containing the Asimov Foundation Trilogy, is located in the glovebox of the Cherry Red Tesla Roadster orbiting the Sun.

The Arch library that was included on the Falcon Heavy today was created using a new technology, 5D optical storage in quartz, developed by our advisor Dr. Peter Kazansky and his team, at the University of Southampton, Optoelectronics Research Centre.

This Arch library will orbit the Sun for at least 30 millions of years inside Elon’s Tesla Roadster. The Roadster is the perfect place to put an Arch library so that it can be noticed and retrieved in the distant future.
