people from Sri Lanka to join us in this mission,” said Steve Lynch, founder
and CEO. “Without them, we may overlook critical information relative to that

ARKhives will include science, technology, history, and art information that
would be critical to the continued progress of humankind following a regional
or global catastrophe. The Living ARKhives will store DNA from humans, animals,
plants, and microbes deemed critical to the future of humanity and the Earth environment.
will be stored in a network of five underground Earth Ark sites located in
North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Two additional sites
are being considered in Australia and the Middle East. A site for the North America
Earth Ark has been tentatively selected in Eastern Washington.
withstand any number of potential disasters, the Earth Ark sites will be linked
to a Lunar Ark to be placed on the moon in 2018. The Lunar Ark will store an
additional copy of the Earth ARKhives and will be a relay facility for
communications if satellites and Earth-based systems are compromised.

Earth ARKhives will also be included as a time capsule onboard Starship Ark,
scheduled for launch in 2020. Starship Ark will be the first interstellar craft
to target a planet outside our solar system.

part of this historic project. By building their Family ARKhives™, they will
benefit themselves and their families for generations to come, as described in
the Family ARKhives two-minute video, “Don’t Take It with You.” But the mission
of Space Colony Earth and the contributions of its participants goes further—to
benefit the entire human race.
Lynch and his Space Colony Earth Team have selected a Board of Advisors already
numbering more than thirty professionals. Their combined expertise and stature
in the scientific community underscore that Space Colony Earth is not just
visionary, but grounded in the reality of what is possible. Reflecting the
global importance of this effort, the Board includes members from Australia,
Costa Rica, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Nigeria, and the United
States, with additional advisors now under consideration.
“This project will benefit all humanity,” Lynch
announced, “and we will reach out around the world to get the job done.” A
growing team of specialists in social networking and media will help ensure
that news of this project reaches every corner
