TIME CAPSULE “A container used to store for posterity a selection of objects or information thought to be representative of life at a particular time” (Time Capsule, The Oxford English Dictionary, 1989)


1938 New York World’s Fair’s Westinghouse Time Capsule of Cupaloy Popular Science, December 1938, p.112. // Popular Mechanics December 1938, p.848. The 1939 New York World's Fair time capsule was created byWestinghouse as part of their exhibit. It was 90 inches (2.3 metres) long, with an interior diameter of 6.5 inches (16 cm), and weighed 800 pounds (360 kg). Westinghouse named the copper, chromium and silver alloy "Cupaloy", claiming it had the same strength as mild steel. It contained everyday items such as a spool of thread and doll, a Book of Record (description of the capsule and its creators), a vial of staple food crop seeds, a microscope and a 15-minute RKO Pathé Pictures newsreel. Microfilm spools condensed the contents of a Sears Roebuck catalog, dictionary, almanac, and other texts. This first modern time capsule was followed in 1965 by a second capsule at the same site, but 10 feet to the north of the original. Both capsules are buried 50 feet below Flushing Meadows Park, site of the Fair. Both the 1939 and 1965 Westinghouse Time Capsules are meant to be opened in 6939.

193X- XXXX Crypt of Civilization Popular Science, December 1938, pp.110-111. The Crypt of Civilization is a sealed airtight chamber located at Oglethorpe University in Brookhaven, Georgia, in Metro Atlanta. The crypt consists of preserved artifacts scheduled to be opened in the year AD 8113.[1][2] The 1990 Guinness Book of World Records cites the crypt as the "first successful attempt to bury a record of this culture for any future inhabitants or visitors to the planet Earth."[3][4] Thornwell Jacobs (1877–1956), referred to as "the father of the modern time capsule," claims to be the first in modern times to conceive the idea of consciously preserving manmade objects for posterity by placing them in a sealed repository.

Future explorers on the Planet Mars may want to bring along a portable CD-ROM player… a compact disc will be waiting for the on the surface of the red planet… “This is in a way, the first time capsule sent to another planet…” says project director John Lomberg of The Planetary Society. “It’s a tapestry of text, image, and sound representing what people from around the world have tought and said about Mars”. With a capacity of 180 megabytes…

2001 New York Times Time Capsule [Santiago Calatrava] This plaque explaining that it should not be opened until the year 3000 AD got me wondering what is in this time capsule (hopfully no food items). There is a full list of the contents on the American Museum of Natural History's website. Some of the funny things I saw there were: WalMart barcodes, condoms from Zimbabwe, a child's tooth and a fortune from a fortune cookie.

Contains artifacts related to Project Mercury, including photos, film footage, capsule blueprints, John Glenn's Marine Corps pilot's wings Project Mercury was the first human spaceflight program of the United States. It ran from 1959 through 1963 with two goals: putting a human in orbit around the Earth, and doing it before the Soviet Union, as part of the early space race. Along with the writings of former space project workers, the time capsule will contain Project Mercury-related artifacts, including newspaper articles and magazines from the era of the project, said Dr. Lori Walters, director of the Florida Space Coast History Project for UCF.

2004 Genesis Landing Time Capsule On the morning of September 6, 2006 team members of the Utah Test and Training Range (UTTR) hosted a dedication ceremony in honor of the two-year anniversary of the Genesis science capsule return to Earth. In a ceremony attended by representatives from Dugway Proving Ground (DPG), Hill Air Force Base, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Johnson Space Center (JSC), and Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL), a permanent monument was installed commemorating the significance of solar wind samples returned to Earth. Within the obelisk-shaped monument, a time capsule containing print and media features that characterize the mission from inception to present day was installed. The monument and time capsule were made possible through private donations. The monument is placed on the exact spot of the capsule’s Earth return.

1975 Citizen’s Time Capsule [Ant Farm] Derivadas de las ya famosas "Cápsulas del Tiempo" como la exhibida en la Expo Universal de 1939 en el pabellón de la WestingHouse, Ant Farm utiliza en varias ocasiones este formato participativo. En 1975 entierran una cápsula del tiempo materializada en un icono como era un automóvil Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser del 68 lleno de objetos de todo tipo donados por la gente del lugar. Todo ello es enterrado en el Artpark de Lewiston en el estado de Nueva york a través de un acto ceremonial multitudinario.

The highest number of contributions, (32,910) came from the 20-29 age group.[3]

1969 Apollo 11 goodwill messages The Apollo 11 goodwill messages are statements from leaders of 73 countries around the world on a disc about the size of a 50-cent piece made of silicon that was left on the Moon by the Apollo 11 astronauts. The disc also carried names of the leadership of the Congress, the four committees of the House and Senate responsible for the National Aeronautics, and the Space Administration legislation. The names of NASA's top management, including past Administrators and Deputy Administrators were included. At the top of the disc is the inscription: "Goodwill messages from around the world brought to the Moon by the astronauts of Apollo 11." Around the rim is the statement: "From Planet Earth -- July 1969". The disc was manufactured by Sprague Electric Company of North Adams, Massachusetts. NASA administratorThomas O. Paine corresponded with world leaders to enshrine their messages, which were photographed and reduced to 1/200 scale ultra microfiche silicon etching. The disc rests in an aluminum case on the Moon's Sea of Tranquility.[1]

2008 Immortality Drive The Immortality Drive is a large memory device which was taken to the International Space Station in a Soyuz spacecraft on October 12, 2008.

The intent of the Immortality Drive is to preserve human DNA in a time capsule, in case some global cataclysm should occur on Earth. The Immortality Drive was featured in History Channel's Life After People, first season episode "The Bodies Left Behind".

1975 Davisson Time Capsule Where would one go to find the official, GWBR-certified “World’s Largest Time Capsule”? Not in the center of a major metropolis or at a global exhibition attended by millions, but instead at 318 Hillcrest Dr., Seward, Nebraska. At that exact location sits a brilliant white pyramid below which is a 20 by 8 by 6 concrete vault housing a variety of typical – actually, stereotypical – Seventies memorabilia including a new 1975 Chevy Vega and a leisure suit.

1974 / 1987 Andy Warhol’s Time Capsules The acclaimed pop-artist Andy Warhol once wrote, “What you should do is get a box for a month, and drop everything in it and at the end of the month lock it up.” Beginning in 1974 Warhol did just that and more. By the time of his death in 1987 the pale eccentric had filled and locked away 612 individually boxed time capsules that are today stored at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA.
