Scientists Planning To Send Millions Of Sperm Samples To A Vault Inside The Moon

Noah brings pairs of animal species onto his ark during the biblical flood to save them from a great flood. Scientists see doing an identical thing now — sending 6.7 million samples of seeds, sperm, eggs, and DNA to the moon.

The plan was presented at the IEE Aerospace Conference last weekend by scientists from the University of Arizona. While this sounds like a science-fiction plotline, it’s not as impossible as it seems.
