Entrance denied: 10 most protected objects on Earth

1. Global Seed Vault, Svalbard, Norway

This seed vault was built in 2009 on the island of Svalbard. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it stores 250 million seed samples from all over the planet. This was done for a simple reason: so that people could restore the food and agricultural structure lost during the crisis, war or natural disasters. There is absolutely no tectonic activity on the island, and it is located at an altitude of 130 m above sea level, which makes it an ideal place to store seeds. And the idea is not bad!

6. Area 51, Nevada, USA

This secret base is so secret that you won't be able to find it even on the most detailed maps. The airspace above the military base is closed, so there is no way to photograph it from above. Near the base there are shields that warn intruders from further advancement along this road: further on is a restricted area.

10. HavenCo Data Center, UK

The data center was opened in 2000 on the territory of the Principality of Sealand, a virtual state proclaimed back in 1967. Thanks to the lack of hard laws, featureless nature and a fairly safe physical location, Sealand has repeatedly become a haven for all sorts of shadow operators, as well as for HavenCo - the world's first truly offshore, almost no-man's electronic data storage on the border of legal and illegal. Setting up a data center in one of the most inaccessible places on earth was a brilliant concept that led to many problems in the end. The center ceased to exist in 2008.
