7 year old girl will become the first kid to send an item to the moon

Seven-year-old Elizabeth Norman will become the first child to send something to the moon. She was given this opportunity after her passion for space led her to stage the launch of a massive homemade Vulcan Centaur rocket from her garden.

It caught the eye of Tory Bruno, the CEO of ULA, and lunar lander manufacturer Astrobotic and captured the attention of US experts currently prepping the real Vulcan Centaur for the first moon landing in nearly 50 years. United Launch Alliance (ULA) has a miniscule space left on an upcoming mission to send the first ever private pod to land on the lunar surface.

They have offered to take something belonging to ‘Astro Liz’, and now a sticker carrying the name of her space blog will be part of the first ever lunar ‘time capsule’.

Elizabeth said: “I can’t wait to see a video of the capsule with my sticker on the moon taken by the lunar lander.

“Astrobotic is making my space dreams come true and I’m so excited to watch the launch… I love science and space because there is so much to learn and I love exploring and doing experiments.”
