In airplanes, the black box records and stores flight data to provide information in the event of a crash. With climate change putting our planet in a downward spiral, Earth is getting one its own. The 33-foot-long steel vault will is being constructed on the coast of Tasmania and is designed to record and collect measurements and interactions as our planet continues to decline. The data will be stored in the indestructible structure for up to 50 years for future generations to learn from. The project is a collaboration between Clemenger BBDO and the University of Tasmania, and while it's expected to be complete in early 2022, recording is already underway.
