Is Doomsday near? According to Norway government and it's recent efforts it is. Together with Global Crop Diversity Trust and Nordic Gene Bank Norwegian government has financed with 9M dollars and opened Doomsday Seed Vault on the island about 1100 km from North Pole.

Goal is to preserve all crop seeds available today from around the world just in case of some disaster. Location is 130 meters above sea level so no harm will be done even if ice caps melt. Seeds could survive here for hundreds even thousands of years. Someone asked funny but interesting question: who has the keys and will he/she be around when vault needed to be open?
