Arca is a treasure chest where the memory of a complex environmental system is kept. It’s a portable storage where the seeds of a universe, made of earth related images and memories, are preserved.

NASA Planetary Protection Office was created to protect celestial bodies from earth contamination during scouting expeditions by humans in order to study an alien environment in its natural condition. Instead, A R C A gives the chance of transferring to the planet to be colonized genetic information of some animal and plant species, with the aim of recreating an earth-like habitat in the new environment.
