Our project was inspired by various accomplishments and endeavours. One of the more spectacular examples is the 10,000 year clock that is being built in Texas, which uses cutting edge materials, engineering and precise mathematical calculation to create a clock which will outlive any being on earth. This is a rather monumental project, and does not yet have an estimated completion date, but it attracted funding from a couple of internet billionaires, obtained the remote mountain property, and is actually under construction, so it may, in fact, happen.

There are a handful of well-known experiments that have actually been running for a long time. Examples include

The challenge of creating something which can function far beyond our own lifetime seems to be a universal desire and thus captures an interesting and satisfying feat.
