George Edward Pendray is responsible for coining the term 'time capsule” to refer to a cache of current goods or information, usually intended as a method of communication with future people. Sometimes created and buried during celebrations, such as a cornerstone laying for a building, time capsules are set aside with the intention that they will be opened or accessed at a future date. Tens of thousands of time capsules have been scattered across the globe, but no one is sure when the concept was invented. In 2014, a Revolutionary-era time capsule dating to 1795 was found at the Massachusetts State House and credited to Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. Currently, four time capsules reside in space. The two Pioneer Plaques and the two Voyager Golden Records have been attached to spacecraft for the possible benefit of spacefarers in the distant future. The International Time Capsule Society was created to maintain a global database of all existing time capsules.
