The European Space Agency’s chief scientist has said there should be a “Noah’s Ark” on the Moon, in case life on Earth is wiped out by an asteroid or nuclear holocaust. … Dr Bernard Foing said the ark should be a repository for the DNA of every single species of plant and animal.
Dr Foing is head of Europe’s Moon missions, so his thoughts on matters lunar should be taken seriously. He is concerned that if the Earth were destroyed, there would be little or nothing left of the rich diversity of life on the planet. His solution is to build a DNA library on Earth’s satellite.
“If there were a catastrophic collision on Earth or a nuclear war, you could place some samples of Earth’s biosphere, including humans, [on the Moon],” he said. “You could repopulate the Earth afterwards, like a Noah’s Ark,” he said. – BBC
Right. My guess is that they’ve already been doing this for years secretly. If not on the moon, then at least in underground facilities here on Earth. Perhaps on Mars too.
