5-D Data Storage for 13.8 Billion Years?

“We can guarantee that we have the ability to store the culture,
language and essence of the human race in a simple piece of glass
for future civilizations — or what ever else is Out There.”

- Aabid Patel, Ph.D., Optical Physicist, U. K.'s Univ. of Southampton

February 19, 2016  San Francisco, California - A surprising headline appeared in technology news February 16th proclaiming “Five-dimensional” glass discs can store data for up to 13.8 billion years.”  That’s the age of this universe! The news came this week from the 2016 Int'l. Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) conference in San Francisco where scientists from the U. K.’s University of Southampton reported: “We can guarantee that we have the ability to store the culture, language and essence of the human race in a simple piece of glass for future civilizations — or what ever else is out there.”
