Somewhere in or near the new lunar crater created by the crash of the Israeli Beresheet probe lies a small pile of metal discs etched with 30 million pages of human knowledge – including the secrets of famous magical acts, the The effort behind the tweet tweeted Wednesday.
"Accurately kept secrets to David Copperfield's magic tricks lie somewhere on the moon after he handed them over to Israel to launch their failed Beresheet probe into space," the Arch Mission Foundation tweeted.

"We either installed the first library on the moon, or we installed the first archaeological ruins of early human attempts to build a library on the moon," he said Arch Mission founding member of the foundation, Nova Spivack.
Although the tiny Israeli spacecraft had successfully attained lunar orbit, it crashed on April 11 in an attempted landing. The project leaders promised to fix the technical problems behind the crash and make a second attempt to become the fourth country to safely land a probe on the moon.
The library contains a 30 million page human history and civilization archive covering all topics, cultures, nations, languages and genres. It is housed in a 100 gram stack of 25 nickel disks, each 40 microns thick, etched with nanotechnology.
"It's hard to know what happened to the stack, but given the structure of the lunar library, we have a high probability of being intact," Spivack said, adding [ in the future retrieved by people. "
Engineers believe that the spacecraft moved at 500 km / h as it crashed into the lunar surface.
Become interesting if you try to find him on the moon, if possible. "
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield seemed to take on the challenge, calling the disks" a 30 million-page Frisbee page on the moon – I hope to pick them up someday. "
