Time capsule

From: Judith Murphy <jamurphy>
Date: Wednesday, August 25, 1999
Received a request from Myra O'Canna, librarian at Sandia Labs, who
is not on this list.  She wants to know if it is a good idea to pack
a tiny landmine-finding robot, about the size of a sugar cube,
inside a black or opaque film can?  Also, she has some salt from a
solar project, and a piece of rubber tire, that should be
hermetically sealed, to go inside the larger time capsule
celebrating the lab's 50th anniversary.  Does anyone know how this
should be done?  The capsule will be opened in 25 years, so it's not
like some millennium projects.  Thank you for any suggestions or
further questions to consider.
