How will Humanity outlive Doomsday?


...a question that troubles many. How can we, as a species, preserve our species and other earthbound species to live beyond a global disaster, a Doomsday, as it were.

Here is an interesting read on a couple of current options that are well under way. We've got the Doomsday Vault being built in the Norwegian Arctic (probably safer than New York City) to store and stockpile crop seeds. There is the Frozen Ark in England, storing DNA samples from endangered species. And there is ARC, the Alliance to Rescue Civilization, who wants to build a station on the moon storing samples of all life on earth, and a compendium of Human Knowledge.

I support these projects fully, and look forward to their progress.
