Submission + - Crowdsourcing a Time Capsule to send to Mars (

braindrainbahrain writes: In what is claimed to be (and probably is) the largest crowdsourced project ever, a group of students, advisors, and industry sponsors are planning to send a "time capsule" to Mars by charging 99 cents for each person that wants to upload a file, be it a photo, text, or what have you, to their website. They need to raise $25 million to pull this off (that's a lot of files!). The uploaded files will be loaded onto a small form factor satellite which will be launched to land on Mars and (hopefully) be found by explorers sometime in the future.
