According tomedia reports, NASA is a new campaign to ask the public a simple question: If you want to travel to the moon, what items will people bring? NASA encourages anyone interested to share what’s in their bag (for this imaginary lunar trip) using its new social event, NASAMoonKit.
Of course, any space trip requires a pile of specialized equipment, and people may spend most of their time enjoying the vastness of space, the moon and the views of our planet. However, everyone needs some rest time to relax, which is where a person’s personal belongings will appear. So what items do people bring to spend their time?
NASA is currently conducting an Althymis lunar mission with the goal of sending several astronauts to the moon’s surface by 2024. The space agency explained that astronauts would be subject to “quite strict restrictions” on what personal items to carry — it would have to be packed in a “carry-on box× size not exceeding 5×8×2 inches, about the size of a hardcry book.
NASA encourages the public to find a container that meets this volume limit, pack some of the precious items they’ll bring with them during their trip, and then take a photo and share it on social media — whether it’s Instagram, Facebook or Twitter — using the hashtag . NASA says that if it likes what it sees, it may share posts on its social accounts.
The space agency shared an interesting video showing something that might be carried, but the options were indeed more limited. Because the space is so small, people may only be able to bring pictures of their loved ones, perhaps one or two lucky accessories, a very small book and things like that. It’s unclear what kind of items astronauts on the International Space Station are carrying.
