The Arctic Circle is Home to… a World Wide Seed Vault?!

Wow!  I must admit that I had never thought of an idea like this, nor did I realize that this could actually exist.  This is, literally, a world wide seed vault that exists in the Arctic Circle.  It's purpose is to conserve thousands of varieties of seeds that farmers may need in the future if climate change or other catastrophes cause too much damage to food crops.
