New Horizons Digital Time Capsule Contest
New Horizons, launched in January 2006 on a nine-year journey to Pluto, is leaving behind an Earth that will not be the same when the spacecraft arrives at its destination in 2015. The Planetary Society, in conjunction with the New Horizons mission, invites children and adults around the world to send a message to future Earth. The New Horizons Digital Time Capsule will consist of photographs of things in 2006 that people expect will be transformed by 2015.
