Scientists have just succeeded in writing data into a dimension that might not exist.
Take a look at these 3D-printed shapes. They're email addresses, and you can read them if you know how.
Researches have coded a bunch of information on DNA, including all 154 Shakespeare sonnets.
Magnetic tape degrades over time, but it's what most labs use to store data. Quartz might prove to be the end of that, with a data life of something like 300 million years.
The amount of data we're talking about is big. A team of high-energy physicists led by those at the California Institute of Technology reached a transfer rate of 339 gigabits per second (Gbps). That is the equivalent of moving four million gigabytes or one million full-length movies per day.
