“Dooms Day Vault”

www.cnn.com

A vast underground vault storing millions of seeds from around the world is scheduled to open this week in a mountain on a remote island near the Arctic Ocean.

It is called the “Dooms Day Vault”

It will be able to hold up to 4.5 million seed samples from around the world…eventually it will house almost every variety of the most important food crops in the world.

The United Nations founded the trust in 2004 to support long term conservation of crop diversity.

The temperature can keep seeds viable for up to 10 thousand years!

In the event of a world wide catastrophe…. the seedlings would be there to start anew….WOW!

From the CNN site you can visit the vault on the web.
