This tiny glass disc can store 360TB of data for 13.8 billion years

… To create the data disc, researchers from the University of Southampton used a process called femtosecond laser writing, which creates small discs of glass using an ultrafast laser that generates short and intense pulses of light. These pulses can write data in three layers of nanostructured dots separated by 5 micrometres (that’s 0.005 mm).

… While the technology was first demonstrated in 2013, it’s now capable of storing much more data: the team has already saved copies of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), Newton’s Opticks, The Magna Carta and The King James Bible on these tiny discs.
