Worried about how to back up your data? Would it help you if you could store 700 terabytes in one gram of storage space? How much is 700 terabytes?
that’s 14,000 50-gigabyte Blu-ray discs…. To store the same kind of data on hard drives — the densest storage medium in use today — you’d need 233 3TB drives, weighing a total of 151 kilos.
According to Extreme Tech, researchers at Harvard have figured out how to store that much data in a gram of DNA. That would be a droplet that could sit on your fingertip. Or, if we are talking about DNA, why not store that much data in your fingertip? Hmm … that may be possible in the future.
