A MANIFEST FOR THE MOON

The Lunar Codex uses digital and analog technology to preserve art, books, music, and more, enclosed in time capsules and launched to the Moon. It is a message-in-a-bottle to the future.

Curatorial Notes

 

This section documents back-up files in the Polaris Collection for all Lunar Codex documents and images sent on previous missions.

Polaris also provides a back-up for the Writers on the Moon files, sent as an independent project on Peregrine Mission One.

Music is represented with an MP3 for the dance-ballad What If I Wrote You a Love Song,  and the score and lyrics to the 400th anniversary hymn written for the Colegio de San Juan de Letran. Tangential to these, we also feature work from two Letran alumni, an experimental cross-format story, and two autobiographies/memoirs.

Finally, at the intersection of art and science, the collection includes a representative example each of a peer-reviewed scientific paper, an issued U.S. patent, and the first draft of a unique book of poetry - a collaboration between Dr. Peralta, as his poetic persona Semaphore, and the A.I. poet OSUN.

PHOTOACOUSTIC FREQUENCY-DOMAIN DEPTH PROFILING OF CONTINUOUSLY INHOMOGENEOUS CONDENSED PHASES: THEORY AND SIMULATIONS FOR THE INVERSE PROBLEM

J. Appl. Phys. 70 (3), 1 August 1991 - PM1


- Andreas Mandelis, Samuel Peralta, and Jan Thoen
- An application is presented of the Hamilton-Jacobi formulation of thermal-wave physics to the problem of photoacoustic depth profiling of inhomogeneous solids with arbitrary, continuously varying thermal diffusivity profiles. Simple expressions for the modulation frequency dependence of the photoacoustic signal in the case of exponential thermal diffusivity profiles are obtained, and a working general method for solving the inverse problem and obtaining arbitrary diffusivity depth profiles is demonstrated through computer simulations. The method was found to possess excellent profile reconstruction fidelity.
