The Alliance to Rescue Civilization is an organization devoted to the establishment of an off-Earth "backup" of human civilization. This facility, or group of facilities, would serve to repopulate the Earth after a worldwide disaster or war, preserving as much as possible of both the sciences and the arts. The organization is currently calling for such a backup facility to be built on the Moon in lieu of NASA's plan to return there by 2024.
