Marspedia

Does this forum still make sense? Maybe it does, as we will be putting a lot of new effort soon into Marspedia.org

Stay tuned for some announcements

Re: Marspedia

The Israeli Moon Lander (apparently) contains a data store including the English language Wikipedia archive.

Beresheet stands about 5 feet tall (1.5 meters) and is designed to spend two Earth days on the moon taking photos and other measurements. The spacecraft is carrying an Israeli flag, a time capsule, a "Lunar Library" containing the full English contents of Wikipedia and more for the Arch Mission Foundation, as well as a laser retroreflector experiment for NASA.

I bring this up as a stretch goal for the Mars Society.  A package containing a data store assembled by the Mars Society could be included in a future Mars lander.
