Immortality Drive Time Capsule

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 Immortality Drive contains fully digitized DNA sequences of a select group of humans.

The Immortality Drive is a computer disk on the International Space Station that contains the digitized genetic information of an eclectic group of individuals such as physicist Stephen Hawking, comedian Stephen Colbert, Playboy Playmate Jo Garcia, game designer Richard Garriot, Pro Wrestler Matt Morgan, and athlete Lance Armstrong. The Immortality Drive proves to be very mortal after all when it is destroyed in the crash of the International Space Station three years after people.
