the doomsday vault sounds ominous and it kind of is. The vault is exactly underground tank, which is located in the "major disaster" case established the world's seed stock.
the seed of humanity from a new beginning of a large-scale war, a natural disaster, a pandemic or the end of the world after, as the BBC series Ice Town - Life on the edge is told. A couple of years ago, the vault was opened for the first time so, that something was taken away. There was sent the seeds of Syria, whose fields and its own gene bank were destroyed in the war.
Doomsday vault located in the Norwegian part of spitsbergen, deep in the permafrost inside and there should be room for all the world's crops for seeds. Three enclosed storage room can hold 2.25 billion seeds.
Similar arches elsewhere in the world, but the peak of the mountain of the bank must be preserved and as if other backup. The place is a terrorist in terms of remoteness and earthquakes threat. And most importantly: the Svalbard Global Seed Vault three halls located on the icy mountain. Climate change – or even cooling system failures – despite the upholstery is believed to remain sufficiently cold as -18 degrees, so that the seeds remain even hundreds of years.
the Vault is delivered also to the Finnish crop plants.
Some people think this is a multi-national suuyhtiöiden conspiracy. They are believed to want to control the grain harvest and food, american journalist Mark Sabbatini tell in tonight's episode.
And then there are rumors of crazy scientists and the zombies. Is sci-fi tales and other totally absurd.
