WORKING TOGETHER TO ADVANCE SPACE DEVELOPMENT



BIOPRESERVE WORKING GROUP (BPWG)


ABOUT:
The BioPreserve Working Group (BPWG) seeks to describe and illustrate what it would be like to assemble, deliver, and store a frozen back-up of samples of species on Earth.


OBJECTIVES:
   - Update the BioPreserve page.
   - Determine how many specimen samples could be stored in one or more payloads (e.g. Starship 100 tonnes to Luna).
   - Research to identify how specimen could be obtained, processed, stored, and transported.
   - Develop and write up a concept for a long-term, cryogenic, lunar and Martian bunker for the storage of the BioPreserve.
   - Categorize the number of species, estimate their minimum viable population (MVP), and their most resurrectable forms.
   - Figure out how mammalian species could be resurrected and whether a zoo needs to be maintained.
   - Develop and write up a concept for a website that would facilitate universities establishing BioPreserves.
   - Seek to get a (philanthropic?) organization to take the lead on this project to bring it to reality.
   - Write up articles in the popular space press (e.g. The Space Review) on the topic.
   - Write up more formal (e.g. scientific) papers on the topic.
