A second ‘Doomsday Vault‘ was opened in a former Norwegian coal mine to store data in the event of an apocalypse.

The new vault, officially known as the Arctic World Archive, is filled with books, documents and other forms of data on photosensitive film. The archive is located on the island of Svalbard on the same mountain as the Global Seed Vault, which is home to 1.5 million of the world’s most important seed crops.
