We allready have the seed vault in Svalbard, now we seem to be branching out.
By 2014 the global seed vault has 800 000 seed samples.

The "World Arctic Archive" will be storing documents from the countries of the world in a defunct coalmine in Svalbard.
The documents will be stored in caset he archives in the homecountry are destroyed by natural disasters, war or hacker attacks.

The new vault will open tomorrow (Monday 27.March)

So this is the "important historical documents" equivalent of the seed vault, in a separate location?


ETA: they should be doing this with music and fine art as well!

That is my impression, yes.. allthough the seed vault was also built in a mine, the so called mine3 (gruve3).


ps this opening seems more low key... we'll see tomorrow.

Yes, music, scientific study, everything.... in an EMP protected data warehouse with paper back-up.

Watch out for the extinct wasp's larvae that could soon be exposed through the permafrost melting.

Seriously though, who could blame them?

Is Springer going to send an archive of ATS to it?

It's quite coincidental that I was just listening to a podcast this week that theorized that the pyramids were actually storage facilities for a prophesied coming disaster. Not only was grain and other food stuffs stored, but also important knowledge. Is someone expecting something that they're not telling us?

Here's a slightly bigger news story about this from today. It's in Norwegian though.

Brasil and Mexico will be the first to store their national archives.

The documents will be stored on film rolls, to keep them safe for at least 500 years.
