Previously, we shared an amazing breakthrough: The ability to store data on slivers of quartz glass for 300 million years.
Now, you don’t have to worry about what will happen to your data after those 300 millions years are up—researchers have upped the storage and lifespan of the quartz glass. Your data can be stored safely for 14 billion years.
Let’s get some perspective:
- The Earth is 4.534 billion years old
- The Universe is 13.82 billion years old
With this in mind, your data is essentially safe forever.
