|Space Colony Earth|
Space ColonyEarth is an historic plan to ensure the future survival of humanity and includes the development of multiple sets of Earth ARKhives. The Digital ARKhives will include science, technology, history, and art information that would be critical to the continued progress of humankind following a regional or global catastrophe. The Living ARKhives will store DNA from humans, animals, plants, and microbes deemed critical to the future of humanity and the Earth environment.
Earth ARKhives will be stored in a network of five underground Earth Ark sites located in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Two additional sites are being considered in Australia and the Middle East. A site for the North America Earth Ark has been tentatively selected in Eastern Washington.
Designed to withstand any number of potential disasters, the Earth Ark sites will be linked to a Lunar Ark to be placed on the moon in 2018. The Lunar Ark will store an additional copy of the Earth ARKhives and will be a relay facility for communications if satellites and Earth-based systems are compromised.
“The Lunar Ark is a major part of our back-up plan for Earth,” said Lynch, “something many top scientists, including the late Carl Sagan, have warned for decades should be done.”
Earth ARKhives at Earth Ark sites and onboard the Lunar Ark will be continuously updated to ensure the viability of the information stored.
A set of the Earth ARKhives will also be included as a time capsule onboard Starship Ark, scheduled for launch in 2020. Starship Ark will be the first interstellar craft to target a planet outside our solar system.
A Legacy for All People
Space ColonyEarth will provide people throughout the world with an opportunity to become part of this historic project. By building their Family ARKhives™, they will benefit themselves and their families for generations to come, as described in the Family ARKhives two-minute video, “Don’t Take It with You.” But the mission of Space Colony Earth and the contributions of its participants goes further—to benefit the entire human race.
About Space Colony Earth
Founder Steve Lynch and his Space Colony Earth Team have selected a Board of Advisors already numbering more than thirty professionals. Their combined expertise and stature in the scientific community underscore that Space Colony Earth is not just visionary, but grounded in the reality of what is possible. Reflecting the global importance of this effort, the Board includes members from Australia, Costa Rica, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Nigeria, and the United States, with additional advisors now under consideration.“This project will benefit all humanity,” Lynch announced, “and we will reach out around the world to get the job done.” A growing team of specialists in social networking and media will help ensure that news of this project reaches every corner
