In 1999, the American Museum of Natural History decided to follow suit, and held a contest to design a time capsule that would remain on display a the museum- and not to be opened until the year 3000. 6939 AD, 3000 AD, these are some optimistic people.
The winner was Valencian architect-engineer Santiago Calatrava, with his twisted and gleaming silver sculpture/capsule, which resembles an abstract infinity sign.
