The physical dimensions of the Ark lend themselves to optimal marine survival. In laboratory experiments the six-to-one (length-to-width) ratio of the vessel keeps it upright, with the waves running along its side (causing it to consistently turn toward the waves).
The structural design of the vessel was of "gopher", providing "structural inter-lamination" of each component with every other component. The natural hydrocarbon resin ("pitch") obtained from trees was used as an adhesive, in conjunction with spaced wooden pegs.
Space on the Ark was adequate to house representatives of every kind. Verifying studies include extinct and extant life forms.
