A solar-powered bunker on the moon has been designed to protect the human race in the event of an apocalypse.
In their drafts scientists have allocated underground storage compartments in space to contain seeds, sperm and ovaries.
The construction which has been likened to a modern day Noah’s Ark is Professor Jekan Thanga’s idea of a ‘global insurance policy’.
According to Prof Thanga, the moon’s cool conditions make it the perfect outpost to keep safe materials for reproduction both humans and vegetation.
A ‘doomsday vault’ already holds hundreds of thousands of seed samples at the Svalbard Seedbank in Norway but Thanga believes it is too risky to store them on Earth.
