We’re looking to the future here at NASA Goddard, with the construction of our new Exploration Sciences Building. To celebrate the occasion, we’re preparing to seal a time capsule that won’t be opened until the year 2059. In this episode of Blueshift, we talked to Dr. Michelle Thaller to find out all the details about this time capsule, and then we went around and talked to our friends and colleagues to find out what they thought might best speak to the people of the future about the NASA of today.

Also, if you work in the Sciences and Exploration Directorate here at NASA Goddard, it might not be too late for you to contribute something to our time capsule. There’s more information on this at the end of the podcast!

About Time Capsules

NASA is no stranger to the idea of the time capsule. They even put one on the Voyager Spacecraft!
