                                                A cosmic "message in a bottle" is to be left in space as a relic of the world's languages. A disc engraved with the first three chapters of Genesis in 1,000 native tongues will travel to a distant comet.

The European Space Agency's (Esa) Rosetta mission, set for take-off this month, is making an eight-year voyage to intercept Comet Wirtanen. The unmanned spacecraft will orbit the ball of ice, matter and dust, and land a probe on its surface.

but it would be interesting to see how much the languages change between now and when the comet comes back.
