An Australian professor has some interesting theories about what might happen if we're no longer here as a species and what would happen here on planet earth. The Queensland University of Technology academic has published an article exploring how we "back-up" mankind- in the same way we back up a computer. Jonathan Roberts is Professor in Robotics and has put some thought into where we store our back up and what should be included. He talks to Jesse about what we should do to prepare for humans as a species being wiped out.
