The final design for a "doomsday" vault that will house seeds from all known varieties of food crops has been unveiled by the Norwegian government.
"If you design a facility to be used in worst-case scenarios, then you cannot actually have too much dependency on human beings."
Deep in Norway's frozen Svalbard archipelago sits a high-tech facility that could save the world.
If global catastrophes like asteroid impacts or disease pandemics were to strike, seeds stored in this first ever "doomsday" vault would ensure that humans could regrow the crops needed for survival.
