Jeff Bezos’ 10,000-year clock under construction

Jeff Bezos is best for sitting at the helm of Amazon. The e-commerce giant is slowly but surely establishing full control over the entire world. In a few millennia, though, we may know Bezos for something else: his role in building a 10,000-year clock. The executive has invested $42 million in this project. It’s now being built inside a mountain in West Texas. Standing 500 feet tall and deriving its power from the Earth’s thermal cycles, Bezos said in a tweet the 10 millenium clock is meant as a “symbol for long-term thinking." Installation of the impressive piece of hardware has only just begun. But the concept is actually quite well-established. In fact, the project was initially conceptualized nearly three decades ago.
