Reading Hall C
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.
The Readings sections showcase a selection of works from "The Peregrine Collection" and "The Nova Collection", representing only a small fraction of the total works archived by the Lunar Codex.
Reading Hall C highlights short-form works by poets and writers. The included works form a selection of touchstone poems, some of my own favorites, bookmarks of discovery, favorite works composed by other writers, and poems I wish I'd written.
Works are located as to their respective lunar time capsules as follows:
IM1 - Intuitive Machines Nova-C Mission 1 to Vallis Schrasöteri (The Nova Collection)
PM1 - Astrobotic Peregrine Mission 1 to Lacus Mortis (The Peregrine Collection)
GM1 - Astrobotic Griffin Mission 1 to the Lunar South Pole (The Polaris Collection)
