- climate change
- geomagnetical change
- the hit of an asteroid or a comet
- the near-Earth supernova
- solar evolution
- mass extinctions
- temperature drop or rise
- increased UV radiation due to damaged ozone layer
- complete disappearance of Earth
Save data on satellites revolving around the Sun

Satellites with smart glass materials that store data by modulating the sunlight
- long term data storage should be sun-based due to the Sun's long-lasting future
- current data storage requires a lot of energy - the proposed system is almost zero energy since it relies on the Sun energy for data transmission and positioning
- these systems could be used from any point in space where the Sun reaches - data accessibility from literally anywhere
- Build. A series of simple solar-powered satellites with DLS-based smart glass technologies built
- Store the information. The shutters of smart glasses fixed in a position to modulate the light and store certain information. Sunlight that passes throughthe glass is processed and "read" by calibrated Earth-based systems.
- Send these storage satellites into space. Send these satellites into space and position them for easy information access.
- Long distance information storage. Build and send several "assistant" satellites that are simply mirrors or beam focusing devices that raise the quality and reflect the sunlight carrying information.
- Update data. From time to time, the existing satellites could be updated by new technologies and findings using long distance communication technologies.
