Eternal data storage in the 5th dimension - 360TB on a quartz disk - Crystal skull technology?
Scientists at the University of Southampton have made a major step forward in the development of digital data storage that is capable of surviving for billions of years.

Using nanostructured glass, scientists from the University’s Optoelectronics Research Centre (ORC) have developed the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional (5D) digital data by femtosecond laser writing.

The storage allows unprecedented properties including 360 TB/disc data capacity, thermal stability up to 1,000°C and virtually unlimited lifetime at room temperature (13.8 billion years at 190°C ) opening a new era of eternal data archiving. As a very stable and safe form of portable memory, the technology could be highly useful for organisations with big archives, such as national archives, museums and libraries, to preserve their information and records.

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

Some information about crystal skulls.. I'm wondering if there's a link between the recent discovery and these controversial ancient artifacts.

Finally....

And now please a MASSIVE project to put all books, science, manuals and whatnot on disk.

This many times over, many copies.

Now structure the copies in diverse groups:
simple...like stoneage stuff, instructional movies and examples of artefacts in diverse stadia of production.

in several steps.

to the latest from this time and age.

Put each set of data in vault
The first vault opens with a simple riddle

The last vault requires something complex to open.


Put these sets of vaults in a wide variety of location all over the planet. On plains, on mountains and on the sea bottom.

This way, next time we go extinct...we have a little help.

Nanocube Memory Technology Advances
Strategic Elements (ASX: SOR) is pleased to report that an alternative method of building a Nanocube Memory Ink prototype is being optimised with the aim to reveal significantly enhanced capabilities of the memory technology. Due to very promising early results, extended time and resources have been allocated for further optimisation of this method and initial testing of the memory technology. Some of the advanced potential capabilities of the Nanocube technology have not been released publicly by the Company to date due to the patenting and IP process. It is common within the industry for Companies with disruptive technology to operate in ‘stealth mode’ in respect to certain aspects of their technology until market and IP/patent issues have been addressed. The memory ink prototype tested at the end of 2015 successfully demonstrated a number of important features that differentiate the Nanocube technology. Backing the UNSW technical team with time and resources to follow through their innovative ideas since the start of 2016 has led to a method that potentially enhances some of the most technically advanced features of the technology. Further optimisation and initial testing will be conducted over the next 3-4 weeks. A successful result will enable the Company to demonstrate the enhanced capacity of the technology to future potential partners. The Company will provide information on further developments as appropriate. Managing Director Charles Murphy said, “We believe the technology is completely different to anything else being developed globally. Its important we continue to back the innovative concepts that the UNSW team propose as they are a globally respected technical team developing a breakthrough technology”. Background 100% owned Australian Advanced Materials (AAM) has an exclusive global licence for the technology from UNSW and has contracted the materials group at the UNSW School of Materials Science and Engineering to assist in developing a nanocube memory prototype, improving the technology and creating new intellectual property.
§   Nanocube memory technology is based on RRAM, the type of memory technology forecast to replace flash memory, which is reaching its limits. §   RRAM allows faster, less power hungry, more reliable, cheaper and more scalable memory. §   There are many companies developing different RRAM memory solutions including Micron and Sony. §   However the Nanocube technology has significant points of difference - it is flexible, transparent and can be fabricated into a liquid solution at room temperature outside expensive high-vacuum chambers. §   The obvious fit is Printed Electronics (PE) where chemical, printing and electronic industries have collaborated to create a multi-billion dollar market that will be the future of electronics. §   PE can create flexible, transparent electronics which current semiconductors cannot. PE can also be manufactured using cheap printing methods unlike current electronics made in expensive fabrication plants. §   This creates opportunities to (a) allow device manufacturers to produce flexible products and (b) put electronics in places and on products that have never been able to use electronics before. §   In December 2015 testing results were released clearly demonstrating the potential of the technology.

Nice! Although looking after a crystal is no easier tha looking after an ssd. Still its good for national archives.

Judging by the size of the disc (which, by the way, is not quartz at all,) I don't think you can get a skull to fit in there.

This is going to give intel xpoint memory a some competition, although im doubting that the crystal has high bandwith data transfer abity...

I'm guessing the surface can be polished without affecting the data, if it's designed to last billions of years.

"The documents were recorded using ultrafast laser, producing extremely short and intense pulses of light.
The file is written in three layers of nanostructured dots separated by five micrometres (one millionth of a metre)."

Last time I checked....that is called 3 dimensions.

The information encoding is realised in five dimensions: the size and orientation in addition to the three dimensional position of these nanostructures.

it is in the article

Of course there is connection. Quartz can store information in many many TB. This is widely known for many time now.
The skulls have information there, the problem is how to access it.
