As the first privately-crewed mission bound to the International Space Station, SpaceX’s Ax-1 launch, currently scheduled for April 6th, has garnered a lot of media attention. It’s being heralded as SpaceX’s dress rehearsal for NASA’s Artemis 1 moon mission, for which SpaceX has been hired to build the lunar lander. With that much at stake, it’ll definitely be an exciting and historical launch to watch.
Did You Know There’s an NFT “Stowaway”?
What hasn’t received as much coverage on this voyage is a cache of 30 NFT images that mission specialist, Eytan Stibbe, will be carrying with him on his tablet. The NFT images come from the House of Legends collection curated by Meta-Brothers. That eclectic collection, known as The Greatest Minds of All Time, features pop-art images of inspirational figures such as Oprah, Elon Musk, and the Dalai Lama. The NFTs were hand-drawn by Forbes 30-Under-30 artist, Amit Shimoni and the complete Greatest Minds collection sold out within 48-hours after it was initially offered.
