Bringing Moshe to the Moon


Torah on the Moon

In 1971, Apollo 15 Commander David Scott left a Christian Bible on the surface of the moon. Today, a group of Israeli scientists is trying to add a Sefer Torah to the lunar holy book collection.

According to a report in New Scientist, a group called “Torah on the Moon” has contacted groups in Israel and Spain to inquire about landing scroll on the lunar surface. The groups are competing for a $30 million prize, sponsored by Google, to be awarded to the first group to land a robot on the moon.

New Scientist cited confirmation from the European Space Agency that the group has asked the ESA to create a capsule to protect the Torah scroll. The report said the container would protect the Torah from radiation and temperature changes for at least 10,000 years.

    Outstanding! It will then be complete!!

  2. Just wait till Obama insists on sending a Koran up there.

  3. Just find the Christian book and fix it by tearing that nonsensical Christian part out to leave a real Bible. But add a Tanakh so it can correct any misleading translations.

  4. This would be fantastic – only I hope no one wants to send a Quaran.

  5. Really? Say what? Really? With Anti semitism running like mad ******s around the world. The Mess in the Middle East, and Church vs State vs Athiests you want to bring this up? Are you also sending a Koran and other great religious books? Also what ever the Athiests and Agnostics( should they bother of course) want sent and Dianetics plus more too?

  6. Len Minowitz says:

  10. So old it’s like talking about Bush being mentally retarded. Get over it; next you’ll be wearing cowboy hats at the church picnic.

  11. David Cohen says:

    Let each group place it’s own Holy Book up there. I wonder how long it will take for the Quran to show up. Hey, maybe the best minds of Islam will work on something constructive for a change.

  12. Why?Is Obama a Muslim?Is that the reason he is against the Anti gay law?Plse need your replies.

  13. Sending the bible or the Torah to the Moon, is that the goodnews or God’s commandment to be taught.Please those of going should come down with something.
