    Dang. I thought this place was supposed to survive most conceivable doomsday scenarios. What up?

  2. Hello again Ruthless. I also thought along the same lines but didn’t want to say much, though it looks like the ongoing changes to the facility will make it more secure from this type of event in the future and all will be well with the “Doomsday Vault.”

    Thanks again for stopping by.

    My understanding is no seeds were damaged and that the vault is good. As you mention modifications to the existing system should minimize any future problems.

    • Yes, no seeds were damaged according to newsmedia, which is great. And yes, here’s hoping the modifications to the vault will prevent such scares in the future.

    I love the concept of a Doomsday vault for seeds. Not that I love the concept of a Doomsday. But the vault. Cheers Carl Kruse.

    Carl Kruse – any update on the situation at Svalbard? I did a Google search and apparently the facility has been reinforced in some way?
