A SpaceX Rocket carrying 125 sculptures by contemporary artist Jeff Koons left the earth's atmosphere the day before last. This latest stunt is an attempt to be the very first authorised artworks placed on the moon. 

According to the report linked above:

The original plan was for the physical works to land on the moon in July that year, with NFTs available through Pace Verso, Pace Gallery’s NFT platform. [...]

“The lander will be carrying Koons’s 125 one-inch miniature Moons sculptures, each representing a phase of the Moon and each associated with people from various fields and time periods who have made a significant impact to human life on Earth, such as Mozart, Galileo, Cleopatra, and Leonardo da Vinci, to name a few,” according to a project statement.
