YouTube superstar Jimmy Donaldson, more popularly known on the Internet as MrBeast, has always been the subject of global media attention for his expensive antics – from tipping restaurant employees $10,000 to giving away a private island for free, MrBeast has done it all. However, the famed YouTube star is showing no signs of stopping just yet. Staying ever true to his hot streak of crazy and outrageously expensive content, MrBeast has recently announced via his Twitter account that he is offering everyone the chance to have their photos and videos brought to the Moon for a price. Although sounding like something straight out of a fantasy book – the bold move from MrBeast is 100% true and you better believe it.
Organizing a livestream video shortly after the shocking announcement, MrBeast explained that he was able to purchase reserved space aboard a Vulcan rocket licensed under the American spacecraft launch service provider United Launch Alliance. The massive launch vehicle will be a part of the Astrobotic Technology Moon Mission conducted by space-tech company Astrobotic Technology under the guidance and sponsorship of NASA which is slated for departure at around June 2021. The iconic YouTuber then goes to claim that the creative project would be “the universe’s first digital time capsule”.
Winning a contract with NASA worth $79.5 million, Astrobotic Technology was granted the opportunity to deliver 14 NASA payloads to the Moon which will be the first of its kind since the Apollo 17 mission which took place way back in 1972. Of the payloads which Astrobotic will be responsible for, they have been given the freedom to sell the extra space which will not be taken up by the payloads to willing buyers. And of course, one of these buyers happens to be MrBeast – long story short, the YouTuber will be sending a durable hard drive containing all the photos and videos sent by fans to outer space along with other special cargo from over five different countries.
Although the actual mission will be taking place during the last month of the first half of 2021, according to the website, submission of photos and videos would only be until March 2021. Fans have until then to come up with the weirdest and most memorable media to be forever immortalized in outer space. According to a YouTube video he uploaded shortly to explain the project, the “possibilities are endless” and that the ambitious MrBeast Moon Project might be the “first and only chance” that people might get to place their favorite photos and videos on the Moon – so long as it is within legal boundaries.
According to the official website’s shop, there are three packages to choose from – the $10 basic photo/video package, the $42 package which includes an exclusive T-Shirt as an add-on to the uploaded photo or video, and the $69 package which comes with an exclusive hoodie instead.
Basically, the available deals allow you to upload either one (1) image or a 1-second video of your choice; furthermore, interested buyers may also make multiple purchases which corresponds to more pictures or longer videos (e.g. placing a $10 order eight times will allow you to upload either 8 different images, an 8-second video, two 4-second videos, and even eight 1-second videos).
