space-grade Rhodium-Platinum alloy

Moon Gallery, Nanoracks, Voyager Space

Imagine having a backup of Earth on the Moon’s surface. That’s ELEMENTO.

 

The main structure is made of a special space-grade Rhodium-Platinum alloy, the same used to make rocket nozzles and jet igniters, this time with the particularity to have been 3D printed into such a small and complex structure.


As a Kisrhombic Triacontahedron, it has 120 equal facets in which will be placed samples of all the elements that can be found naturally on Earth. All packed with info in what resembles the Earth itself that would be on the Moon for future interplanetary generations.
