crops at the end of the world

Last night I happened to be watching 60 minutes on CBS... And what to my wondering eyes should appear, but an EIGN story about doomsday and fear!

I'd heard about this story a few weeks back, but it was interesting to watch actual video of a subterranean building which houses over a billion and a half seeds from all over the world. Purportedly the building is built to last 10,000 years and will be able to survive nuclear winter, global warming, etc.

So if/when earth "goes nova" the survivors will be able to re-seed the earth... that is if they have a key. Or know where to find it. Or know how to farm. sigh.
