These guys aren't that optimistic. They probably expect something very soon: http://www.physorg.com/news193639360.html
That vault for storing data formats is a good idea. Already so much information has been lost and there is no way to retrieve it.
The clock is so irrelevant. It'll be abandoned when our priorities become survivalist. However many years later if survival happens, it will be re-discovered (reasonably soon after since it is chiming) and it'll be dismantled for scrap or destroyed for kicks.America's projects like this (see clock link, see seedbank) are always individualistic, are located conveniently, full of ego and very optimistic. Europe's projects in comparison (see genome link, see seedbank) are far more pessimistic, located very inconveniently and are far more functional, and therefore more future-proof.
Good Posting so thanks
