Planning to create a ‘Lunar Ark
Svalbard Seed Vault is located in Norway, it holds over 1 million seed samples. In case there’s a global disaster like climate change which causes a catastrophic loss of crop diversity. This vault has 500 seeds of almost every crop to revive humanity in the post apocalyptic world.
On a similar note, scientists wants to preserve DNA they’re planning to create a ‘lunar ark.’ That would contain sperm, eggs and seeds from all the 6.7 million known species on Earth. This ARK could be placed in hollowed out lava tubes that exist below the Moon’s surface. It could be powered by solar panels on the surface and keep the samples inside cryogenically frozen.*
