Missions Ark – Safeguarding human ‘seeds of life’ in space
The Arks provide a protected environment and each contain 1.000 protected tubes with human reproduction cells. The cells (male, female and 2-PN) are harvested in supervised IVF clinics worldwide. The cells are deep frozen (vitrified) and stored in secure Earth locations and in a satellite in space in Earth orbit. In this way the cells are protected for any natural or man-made disaster on Earth for decades.
