A bible left behind on the lunar rover by Apollo 15 Commander David Scott may one day be joined by a Sefer Torah, a hand-written scroll sacred to Judaism. New Scientist reports this is the first of three culturally important artifacts that the Israeli-based team behind Torah on the Moon is hoping to send to the lunar surface. They are significant to billions of people, said group founder Paul Aouizerate, who is looking to raise €12 to €15 million in funding for the project.
