Svalbard Science Centre 78┬░north

First they created a giant seed vault to catalog and protect samples of basically every major plant seed in the world, and now they’ve got a science center that matches and surpasses the aforementioned seed vault. This is the Svalbard Science Centre which contains a university, a research center and museum… and happens to be on a remote island in the middle of the Arctic. I think it’s amazing that they can create such beautiful, far off locations. But I’m sure the people who do work there are quite excited to not have a tiny, depressing office in the middle of nowhere to work in.
