Superman and the Memory Crystals

"Superman and the “memory crystals” were popularized in nine feature-length movies. Recently, when scientists at the University of Southhamption announced 5D glass disc technology—allowing the storing of documents and information in space for billions of years—they dubbed it the “Superman Memory Crystal."

Humans produce the “equivalent of 10-million Blu-ray discs’” worth of data every day!

So think what this new technology can mean to future generations in storing even larger archives and information, like that of libraries and museums!

The team of scientists working on the 5D disc technology have already stored the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Newton’s Opticks, the Magna Carta, and the King James version of the Bible!"
