Preserved for Posterity
From "News of the Weird."
Terence Cunningham, a Palo Alto, Calif., Unitarian, embarked
earlier this year on what he estimated was a $70 million
fundraising campaign to build a rocket ship and lunar landing
vehicle for the purpose of placing an indestructible copy of
the Holy Bible on the moon for safekeeping. There, Cunningham
told the newspaper Mountain View Voice, the Bible would be
preserved against tampering or in case civilization is
destroyed on Earth from plagues, wars, or, in his words,
"acts of God."
