NASA aims to use blockchain to validate the validity of its future Moon landing.

NASA is collaborating with the Isle of Man and Florida-based computer startup Lonestar to develop the first blockchain-verified data storage system on the Moon.

If all goes according to plan, the United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and its partners Lonestar, a computing startup based in Florida, and the Isle of Man will launch a payload to the Moon in February 2024 containing “data cubes” The data secured in these cubes will be verified back on Earth using blockchain technology, and when NASA launches, the same blockchain technology will verify once and for all and immutably that humans have landed on the Moon.

When Artemis 2 is launched in November 2024, NASA’s Artemis mission will begin its second phase. The four astronauts on board that crewed mission will depart Earth, orbit the Moon, and then come back to the planet. Though it doesn’t quite compare to setting foot on lunar land, Artemis 2 is expected to be the last test flight before the US government sends people back to the Moon’s surface with Artemis 3.
