The project was named so – the black box of the Earth (Earth’s Black Box). It will be a huge steel monolith set in a remote location on the west coast of the Australian island of Tasmania. It will appear there by the end of 2022.
The black box will be powered by solar energy, solar panels will be installed on the roof of the structure. Data warehouses will be installed inside it. They will download data related to climate change from the Internet. These will be parameters of the temperature of the earth and water, levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, information about the extinction of species, newspaper headlines, messages on social networks and news.
It is noted that the recording of information on hard drives has already begun. Developers are currently testing various methods for longer-term storage.
