5D data storage could record human history forever

The technology was first experimentally demonstrated in 2013 when a 300 kb (kilobyte) digital copy of a text file was successfully recorded in 5D.

Now, nanostructured glass allows 360 TB disk capacity

Scientists have experimentally demonstrated nanostructured glass could record 360 TB/disc data capacity, has thermal stability up to 1000 degree Celsius and has practically unlimited lifetime.
