According to this article, there's an organization that wants to blast a Sefer Torah into space for safe keeping on the moon.
Are there any halachik problems regarding such an endeavour (and if so, what are they)?
(Related: Ilan Ramon (the Israeli astronaut) took a Torah with him when he went into space, but that was for his use, not for storage. Well, in theory. I don't know if he ever actually used it. )
