We don't think that besides various wonders of the world and presidential palaces on our planet there can be even more important construction. An object under the name World semenokhranilishche on Spitsbergen — our future.
This building is in Norway, in the conditions of permafrost, at a 120-meter depth and at the height of 130 meters above sea level in the settlement of Longyearbyen. The project is calculated on preservation of seeds of all agricultural plants existing in the world.

Not so long ago Syrian government has withdrawn a part of the deliveries for completion of seeds in the country after some grain crops have been destroyed by rocket attack.
Object is equipped with lock-chambers and explosion-proof doors. Refrigeration units ensure safety of samples and even if devices will fail, then temperature for several weeks indoors will rise not above, than by 3 °C.
