Often dubbed the 'Doomsday Vault', this fortress-like bunker in Norway stores almost a million samples of food crop seeds, in case of future crises like wars, disasters, or climate change. It's an insurance policy, basically, to protect and preserve plant life for an unknown future – and it's about to receive a first-of-its-kind contribution.
