Papayas to the Moon

Project Type: Installation
Date: February 2024
Location: Lunar Surface
Details: The first Mexican papaya sent to the Moon, merging art and space exploration.

In February 2024, Alejandro Glatt embarked on the most ambitious and significant project of his career: sending the first Mexican papaya to the Moon. The Papayas to the Moon project is a groundbreaking fusion of art and space exploration, symbolizing the limitless possibilities of human creativity and the desire to transcend earthly boundaries. This historic achievement not only marks a milestone in Alejandro’s artistic journey but also in the realm of cultural and scientific exploration.

The inspiration behind this project stems from Alejandro’s deep-rooted connection to the papaya, a native Mexican fruit that he has long celebrated in his work for its rich cultural symbolism and spiritual significance. The papaya represents life, growth, and the connection between humanity and nature. By sending a papaya to the Moon, Alejandro seeks to extend these themes beyond our planet, creating a universal symbol of unity, exploration, and the boundless potential of human imagination.

The Lunaprise Mission is perhaps one of the most important space missions since the Apollo space program landed the first man to land on the moon. The Lunaprise Museum sets art and space records in the “The World’s First Crowd Sourced Time Capsule” that carried more than 222 selected artists who made Art and NFT history when their art landed on the Moon on a Space X Falcon 9 powered mission on February 22nd, 2024 [ IM-1 Mission] The mission launched to the moon on February 15th, 2024 and became the first mission to land on the moon for NASA and the USA since 1972 Learn More at

Project Details

Concept and Vision:

The idea of sending a papaya to the Moon was conceived as a way to merge the realms of art and space exploration, creating a dialogue between the natural world and the vast unknown of space. Alejandro envisioned this project as a way to inspire people to think beyond the conventional boundaries of art and to see the universe as a canvas for human creativity.

Collaboration and Execution:

The execution of this project involved collaboration with BitBasel and Space Blue through the Lunaprise initiative. The papaya was carefully selected, preserved, and encased in a protective vessel designed to withstand the harsh conditions of space travel. The journey to the Moon required meticulous planning and coordination with space missions to ensure the safe delivery of the papaya to the lunar surface​ (MVS Noticias)​​ (Gourmet MX)​​ (Grupo Milenio)​.

Symbolism and Impact:

The Papayas to the Moon project is laden with symbolism. The papaya, representing growth and life, contrasts with the barren and desolate lunar landscape, creating a powerful visual and emotional impact. This juxtaposition invites viewers to reflect on the fragility and resilience of life, the wonders of nature, and the infinite possibilities of human innovation. By achieving this monumental feat, Alejandro not only made history but also opened new avenues for the intersection of art and science. The project has garnered international attention, sparking conversations about the role of art in space exploration and the importance of cultural representation in scientific endeavors​ (MVS Noticias)​​ (Cobertura 360)​.

Legacy and Future Endeavors:

The legacy of the Papayas to the Moon project extends beyond the physical act of sending a fruit to the Moon. It serves as a beacon of inspiration for future artists, scientists, and dreamers who seek to push the boundaries of what is possible. Alejandro’s vision encourages a holistic approach to exploration, where art and science work hand in hand to expand our understanding of the universe. This project exemplifies the power of art to transcend earthly limitations and inspire a sense of wonder and possibility in people around the world​ (Cobertura 360)​​ (BitBasel)​.

First Papaya on the Moon by Alejandro Glatt: Making History in Humanity

In a historic effort, humanity is reaching the moon again, not only through technology but also through the universal language of art. This mission, propelled by a rocket, marks the first US moon landing since 1972, bringing an art museum to the lunar surface. Among the prominent artists participating in this mission are Jeff Koons, Scott Page from Pink Floyd, Crystal Paris, and other artists of great importance. Together, they are bringing creativity and human expression to a new cosmic horizon, making history in humanity.

Lunaprise: The Eternal Museum

Lunaprise aims to eternally preserve humanity’s creative masterpieces by establishing an innovative lunar museum. This extraordinary project encapsulates a diverse collective of art, music, film, and historical artifacts, capturing the essence of human creativity and Zeitgeist over time. The museum, crafted from pure nickel, is designed to withstand the harsh conditions of outer space, promising to last virtually forever without losing any data.

Alejandro Glatt: Representing Mexico

Alejandro Glatt, the artist representing Mexico, is one of the 222 selected artists globally to feature in this first-ever moon museum. Glatt’s work, renowned for promoting the connection between humanity and nature through fruit, echoes the mantra “FEEL THE FRUIT.” His unique piece, soon to be showcased on the moon, symbolizes the harmony of the four elements: Earth, water, wind, and fire, both on our planet and beyond.

Global Recognition

Glatt’s artwork, selected by BitBasel, which aligns with the #17 SDG, United Nations sustainable development goals, will receive extensive media coverage and be shared by the worldwide press. This recognition amplifies the connection between humanity and the broader universe, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for art and nature.
