#SpaceWatchGL Op’ed: A Forgotten Disc. A Path to Peace. by Michelle Hanlon
Nestled inside a protective aluminum shell is a silicon disc about the size of a United States half dollar. Inscribed on this disc are microscopic messages from leaders of 73 nations solicited by Thomas Paine, then head of NASA. The messages, intended to be left on the Moon for posterity, are poignant, proud and congratulatory.
