A look into the most special place on earth
The last hope for the world’s food is this seed vault at a remote island in Norway.
1,300 km from the North Pole is a futuristic looking building wedged 120 meters in a sandstone mountain. With dual blast-proof doors, motion sensors, 2 airlocks, and walls of steel-reinforced concrete 1 meter thick you will be forgiven if you think it is a building right out of a spy movie.
