Scientists at the University of Southampton have created a new data storage method, which uses nanostructured glass and 5 dimensional (5D) laser writing. The small discs, which come in a size of a coin, are said to store 360 terabytes worth of data and last for 13.8 billion year. Researchers have so far preserved important documents such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Bible. According to them, the next stage is to see whether this technology might be taken up by companies so that it can be brought to the wider market.
