Infiltration report inside the unknown huge facility 'Svalbard Seed Vault' that backs up and stores seeds around the world in case of civilization collapse and the end
Svarval World Seeds '. It is a storage . Most of the year is off limits, and videos of infiltrating a mysterious facility that only a few people can enter in the world are released on YouTube.
A facility created to prevent the extinction of crop species in preparation for possible climate changes, natural disasters, nuclear wars, etc., and to provide opportunities for resuming cultivation when plants are extinct all over the world is '
'What is the Svalbard Global Seed Vault in the first place?' Can be understood quickly by watching the following movie.
Look Inside The Doomsday Vault That Protects Seeds Of The World-YouTube
A modern building buried in snow is the Svalbard Global Seed Vault.
Svalbard on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, about 1300 km from the Arctic, is home to the World Seed Vault.
Made of concrete, the exterior looks modern.
In a 427-foot-long storehouse ...
865,000 plant seeds are preserved.
Until now, the main function was storage, but in 2015, the Syrian Civil War made it impossible to grow seeds in seed banks in the region, so full-scale sample extraction was carried out for the first time. “There are no political issues within the facility, only the safe storage of seeds is important,” said a male employee.
Opened in 2008, the facility is closed for most of the year and only a few people can enter the world.

So, you can see how to infiltrate such a world seed storage from the following movie.
The movie starts when a reporter man says, 'Isn't this the most important freezer in the world?'
'That's right,' answers manager Vente.
'Some people call it'the most important room in the world'.'
The outside looks like this, and the vast nature is spreading.
This is the front door.
The inside of the building has a structure with multiple tunnels connected, and although the temperature near the entrance is not so low, it seems that the cold air gets stronger as you go deeper.
You have to go through five doors to reach the most important 'secret room'.
When you open the door ...
Further tunnels continued. The building is designed to withstand explosions and earthquakes and survive for 200 years.
There are three storages about 120 meters from the entrance of the building, one of which is currently in use. Since the storage is in the permafrost layer, it seems that the temperature of -4 to 5 degrees Celsius is maintained all year round without turning on the air conditioning. Therefore, even if there is a problem and electricity cannot be used, the temperature can be kept low in the storage.
If you go to the back of the tunnel, there is another door ...
When you open the door ...
A room with frozen walls and ceilings has appeared.
There are three doors in the permafrost tunnel, each leading to a storage.
Everywhere in the room is full of ice.
Boxes containing seed packs and bottles are lined up in the storage as shown below.
Seeds come through the airport, but the package has never been opened. Only the person who actually uses the seeds can open the package. Also, drugs like marijuana and seeds of genetically modified plants are not accepted.
Sometimes people ask me to save the seeds of genetically modified plants, but I refuse.
So, I finally infiltrated the storage.
Once inside, you can see that there is another door.
After passing through the door, the inside of the storage is like this. The temperature is kept at -18 degrees.
Behind Bent ...
There are many cardboard boxes with the Canadian flag sticker on them. It is not possible to know the type of seeds inside from the outside of the box, but you can see the contents by reading the sticker with the barcode on it with a computer.
The red wooden box was delivered from North Korea. 'It feels like it's been around since the 1960s,' he said.
Boxes from South Korea and boxes from the United States are also lined up on the same shelf.
'It's like a small United Nations,' says Bent.
There is still free space in the storages, but if all three storages work, it will be possible to store 1 billion seeds.
'No one knows what plants will grow in the world 20 years, 30 years, or 40 years from now due to climate change. Preserving different types of seeds will help the next generation. It's very important to get food, 'Bent said.
Seed storage is not limited to the storage on Spitsbergen Island, but there are 1,700 large and small storages around the world. The operation of the depot will be very expensive, but when the civil war made research at the Syrian Center for Agricultural Research in Arid Land (ICARDA) difficult and moved the facility to Lebanon and Morocco. Given the usefulness of seeds in the World Seed Vault, the role of the reservoir is enormous.
The space that was created in only one of the storages was the place where the seeds shipped to Morocco & Lebanon were. ICARDA had 325 boxes in the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, of which 130 boxes and 116,000 samples were returned to the new facility.
