Cat Can't Scratch It

Having massive storage problems and need a little larger storage solution? Researchers at two universities joined forces to create a glass storage disc capable of handling 360TB of data and keep it stored without degradation for an estimated one million years.
The laser works by “shooting” rapid pulses of light onto the glass disc, being able to apply the data in the form of “nanostructured dots” in three layer forms that are spaced a mere 5-micrometers apart from each other.
