Sort of like casting a bottle into the sea, this morning the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium team is sealing up a selection of letters written by today’s children for their counterparts of tomorrow. Along with the 25 selected messages, the time capsule will contain a number of pieces of memorabilia representing the institution’s current activities. All these treasures will be placed with great care and considerable excitement inside the time capsule, where they will be stored for the next 35 years. Between now and 2050, the time capsule will remain safely tucked inside the former star projector. The whole process is described in an exhibition running until May 3, 2015, in fact, and anyone can enjoy reading the students’ inspiring messages on the Montréal Space for Life website.
