AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin city leaders are putting queso on the moon…sort of.
Mayor Steve Adler revealed the contents of a letter that’ll be placed on the moon in about 40 days. It’s part of the Arch Mission Foundation’s goal to archive all human knowledge in space. The letter was on Space X’s Falcon Rocket that launched from Cape Canaveral this week.
Adler included Kerbey Lane’s highly-coveted secret queso recipe. He said the challenge of eating queso in zero gravity is, “one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win.” He also said maybe next time- they’ll remember the chips.
Also on the way to the moon is a picture of renowned Austin cross-dresser and sometimes mayoral candidate Leslie Cochran. Adler says it’s an example of extraterrestrial beings who have become cultural icons here.
Adler wouldn’t describe the photo in detail, but we have a good idea of what it might look like. The mayor gave a hint, by saying: “Leslie mooned Austin enough times. It was about time Austin mooned the moon.”
