After the discussion we just had, I thought you all might be interested. I suppose if nothing else, it will show the level of interest.

All this just to drill 20-100 meters into the moon, what do they expect to find. Even 5 year olds know it will be cheese. Ah, perhaps they want to answer the age old question, cheddar or blue cheese.

I would want to find the old man, and give him a good telling off for scaring me throughout my younger childhood!

I can understand why people might donate but why would you want your hair or a letter leaving there.

For the aliens to find, of course! To give those Smash aliens another cackle?

More likely, to be a time capsule for our descendants to find.
