Glass memory can preserve data for thousands of years

When it comes to storing data, DVDs currently provide the best solution for it, but problem with DVDs is that they cannot store your data for long periods, but luckily, scientists have found a new way to store data for long periods.

After hard drives and DVDs, the new medium for storing data might be glass. British researchers have managed to rearrange atoms in glass using laser,
so your data will be stored even on 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit, or even under water. Although your data can survive in extreme temperatures, it can also survive for long periods of time as well. By storing data into glass, your data will live for thousands of years, which means that 10 generations after you will have access to it when you’re gone.
This special laser can write, delete, and rewrite data into the molecular structure of the glass, and a piece of glass that is large as a cellphone screen can hold 50GB of data. Although this sounds amazing, we wonder when we will see it in action.
