Svalbard Global Seed Vault Graphics. Very interesting. Didn't know this existed.
Snow blows off the Svalbard Global Seed Vault before being inaugurated at sunrise on February 26, 2008. The “doomsday” seed vault built to protect millions of food crops from climate change, wars, and natural disasters opened deep within an Arctic mountain in the remote Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard. Starting with 200,000 samples when it opened, the vault has the capacity for around 4.5 million bar-coded seed samples in all.
