The disc was placed by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin onto the lunar surface on July 20, 1969. The story of this disc is almost as mysterious as the moon itself. Few people even realize its existence and historians have often overlooked this fascinating time capsule. Here is the story of the silicon disc, its origin, and the messages left for future humans (or other creatures) to decipher and learn about a past civilization that "came in peace for all mankind". Many of the messages are beautifully scripted in native languages. A striking example is the guilded message form Pope Paul VI.
The disc is the size of a U.S. half dollar coin and it requires magnification to see the messages. The messages in the book are in their native languages with English translations. All pictures were taken through a microscope.
