With the development of new technologies, people have more and more data. However, it appears that new technologies and devices are advancing fast and things like cell phones or computers are unable to keep up with such an accelerated pace. What can be done to solve this data storage problem? It seems that a revolutionary new option is already on the way and almost ready to be released.
Researchers from the University of Southampton have made public their new nanostructured glass discs. This disk called 5D Glass Data Storage can store digital data for billions of years, or rather, for more than 13 billion years. These discs use laser writing to store data. It sounds like science fiction but it is reality.
Many say that it is a technology of extraterrestrial origin. This new invention could be extremely useful for museums, national archives, defense departments, health care, libraries and many other things.
Indeed, scientists and experts have already begun to preserve important documents such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Magna Carta or the King James Bible, for example. These documents will last for hundreds and hundreds of centuries from now on. This is really a very important invention and can solve a lot of problems with very little effort.
