It sounds like a bunch of sci-fi hullabaloo, but data storage has just crossed into the fifth dimension. That’s right: the dimension sometimes referred to by physicists as the fabric of spacetime can now be harnessed to store you cat videos. And they’ve done it with frikkin’ lasers and quartz.

Basically, science just created Superman’s data crystals and they’re gonna last forever. 

Bare minimum, these things will hold up for a million years. 

… a single crystal disc can store up to 360 terabytes of data. That’s a lot of cat videos.
