The time capsule DVD left on Mars for future Martians

Lol, special silica-gel DVD (that lasts up to years) has been left on mars for future Martians to pick it up and load it onto their PCs… Who’s working at NASA? Where is my tax money going to? Some dumb folks?

Okay, that was kinda pointless to assume an alien could understand DVDs.

The disc – being described as the first interplanetary library – is made of a special silica glass designed to last hundred, if not thousands, of years into the future.

It also holds a collection of Mars-themed artwork, including a poster from a 1936 Flash Gordon film Mars Attacks the World and Orson Welles’s 1938 radio broadcast of War of the Worlds. Patrick Stewart as Star Trek’s Captain Picard also makes an appearance on the DVD.

The idea is to give future Martians a snapshot of how they were viewed on Earth – though, considering some of the content, it may not be met with the most favourable reception.
