It was only a few hours ago that SpaceX announced its new DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon... yes, Dogecoin is going to the Moon and now SpaceX and Tesla founder -- and recent SNL host -- Elon Musk is tweeting about it.

Musk tweeted just minutes ago that "SpaceX launching satellite Doge-1 to the moon next year", he added that there are 3 firsts that the Doge-1 mission will do:

  • Mission paid for in Doge
  • 1st crypto in space
  • 1st meme in space

He of course follows it up with "To the mooooonnn!!" and then embeds the Dogecoin Song - To the Moon from YouTube like the troll he is. Dogecoin trading volume skyrocketed instantly, as well as the price of Dogecoin which climbed from $0.54 to $0.59 within 10 minutes.

DOGE-1 will skyrocket towards the moon in Q1 2022 on the back of a SpaceX Falcon 9 lunar payload mission, with a 40kg cubesat attached. The payload will obtain lunar-spatial intelligence from sensors and cameras on-board with integrated communications and computational systems.
