    Ever heard of this vault? Also known as the "Doomsday Vault", it's a massive vault in Norway where they have stored seeds from countless plants, in the event of global catastrophe, humanity may start over with these preserved seeds. When scientists got stuck inside it before, without any food left, they chose to rather starve to death rather than touch the seeds that they have collected through the years. Would you guys have done the same thing?

    It's a wonderful resource as are the national collections of plants all over the world.
    Just to put the record straight though, I think the scientists who died were in the Institute of Plant Industry, during the siege of Leningrad.

    The Svalbard Global Seed Vault, on an island off Norway's northern coast, as of now stores 825,000 specimens of seeds, representing historical agriculture dating as far back as 13,000 years.

    The vault serves as a defense strategy for the system of seed banks far and wide by storing seeds that however, run the chance of being debilitated by war and other catastrophic events.
