Proposed solar-powered “lunar ark” to hold frozen samples of 6.7 million plants and animals

The idea of humans staying on the moon has been around for hundreds of years. However, it is not exactly a hospitable and eventful place for humans to stay in.

It does not have water or breathable air, and surface temperatures can hit as low as -25 degrees Celsius (-15 degrees Fahrenheit.) On the other hand, these qualities make the moon an ideal place for storing samples that need to stay very cold and undisturbed for centuries.
