The Arch Mission Foundation designs, builds, delivers and maintains curated long-term archives, housed in specially designed devices called Archs™ (pronounced “Arks”).
Archs are being developed with a variety of form factors to survive for long durations in space, as well as on the surfaces of planets, moons and asteroids. The Archs are already the longest-lasting records of human civilization ever created, and possibly that ever will be created. They will last billions of years longer than the Pyramids. They may even last longer than our planet. In a million years the Archs™ may be the only remaining trace of our species and our civilization.
Ultra-long term storage in its Billion-Year Archive project. Billed as civilisation’s backup plan, the initiative ultimately seeks to build an interplanetary cloud for apocalypse-level disaster recovery, with distributed data repositories on Earth, the moon, near-Earth asteroids, orbiting the sun, and other places in the solar system.
