SEND YOUR KEEPSAKE TO THE MOON
ACCEPTING ORDERS FOR LUNAR DELIVERY ON ASTROBOTIC’S MISSION TO THE MOON
Astrobotic is accepting small mementos for missions to the Moon! These keepsakes will be stored on the Moon for centuries to come.
(Please note, MoonBox orders for Peregrine Mission 1 were closed on January 15, 2021 to ensure inclusion in the 2022 launch. We are now accepting orders for future lander missions and will have more details on mission timing to come soon.)
This is your unique opportunity to commemorate your graduation, holiday, wedding, child's birth, or loved one's memory with a lasting symbol we will carry on our lunar lander. Life's most meaningful moments can be forever linked with the Moon in the night sky.
WHAT CAN YOU SEND TO THE MOON?
Any non-hazardous, inert item that fits into your chosen Moon Capsule can be sent to the Moon. Inert means the item uses no electrical power, contains no power source, and does not send or receive data.

No. With MoonBox™ you can send an item to the Moon without having to modify your memento for the space environment.
After ordering MoonBox™, you will receive the MoonBox™ Kit, which includes a container to mail us your item. Simply place your item into the container, and send the Capsule back to Astrobotic using the prepaid postage included in the MoonBox™ Kit.
Upon receipt at Astrobotic, we will remove the item from the container and place it into the Moon Pod. The Moon Pod is a pressurized container filled with air that protects your item from the vacuum of space. As long as your item fits in your container, we take care of the rest.Are you associated with NASA?
