Research­ers at Southamp­ton Uni­ver­sity in the UK have now writ­ten a series of major works to small glass discs– includ­ing the Uni­ver­sal Declar­a­tion of Human Rights, Newton’s Opticks, the Magna Carta and the Kings James Bible. The dens­ity of the data aboard these discs sug­gests that they could squeeze a total of 360 tera­bytes onto a single piece of quartz. They also point out that the data is extremely stable: It could endure for as long as 13.8 bil­lion years at tem­per­at­ures up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
