Let’s show the future our past

Join the Space Needle on its quest to archive the moments and memorabilia that reflect the people and culture of today. The Seattle landmark is launching a nationwide search for items — including predictions for the future and submissions from the public via a contest — that will be sealed and locked away until the tower’s 100th anniversary on April 21, 2062!

While several of the items that will be added to the time capsule will remain a secret for 43 years, the Space Needle has revealed the first five items selected:

  • United States Postal Service Forever Stamps
  • Personal messages from Seattle-based band Pearl Jam
  • A Super Bowl prediction from Seattle Seahawks legend and NFL Hall of Famer Walter Jones
  • One share of Amazon.com stock
  • And of course, a Twinkie

The Space Needle will continue collecting items through Friday, September 13, 2019 before the time capsule is officially sealed during a special ceremony on Monday, October 21, 2019.
