Telenor and Tungsram take the stories of Hungarian scientists to the Moon

Katalin Karikó, Zoltán Bay and Albert-László Barabási featured on Moon plaque

The Peregrine space probe will be launched in summer 2022 to take scientific equipment and some special payload including the Space Time plaque of Hungary’s Puli Space Technologies to the Moon. The metal plaque capable of withstanding the most extreme circumstances for several thousands of years will feature the stories of Hungarian scientists as a message from two Hungarian companies to travel farther in space and time than ever before. Telenor etched the scientific achievements of five outstanding contemporary researchers while Tungsram added the story of Zoltán Bay, the first scientist detecting radar echo from the Moon, to the Moon plaque as if to a microfilm.
