'Superman' Memory Crystal Would Last 1 Million Years

A Superman-inspired memory crystal can store data until the end of civilization. This computer memory crystal can store digital information in five dimensions: the three dimensions of space and two extra dimensions of crystal lattice.

This technology can secure the last evidence of civilisation. All we’ve learnt will not be forgotten

http://news.discovery.com/tech/gear-and-gadgets/superman-memory-crystal-would-last-1-million-years-151001.htm

Assuming it will be found. We are going to need more time on this planet to put something we can be proud of, because so far our mistakes are out waying our achievements and if the Crystal is left behind because we have killed ourselves off.....really? I think I would rather no other being from another planet NOT know what kind of a race we were.

Yes, museums storing information would be great....as long as the information of the future is not of the devastation we have created in the past.....eg: wars and what we once looked like, before we bombed the life out of everything in that area.

Unfortunately those who find it will probably end up wearing it around their neck or decorating their homes with it.

We are in the midst of the 6th extinction, holocene, due to human over-activity and, consequently hundreds of species have become extinct. It seems it would be worth the effort to adequately record in-peril life for future reference. Then again, if we are too stupid as a species to control our current peril, will the survivors be sufficiently versed and able to use the technology this embraces. What is the IQ of a cockroach?

You're looking at Iron's 'adult entertainment collection' right there in all its crystalline splendor! ;)

haha, but true. Unless "those" can read our languages and we have put instructions on how these will work, then yep, they could well end up round someone's neck or dangling in the spaceships toilet.

I don't believe that all those crystal skulls are for real but I would be willing to bet some are.

I mean if you were going to leave a crystal message to be found by another civilization and not to be worn as jewelry or dismissed, what better form than a skull of your species for future archeologists to find!

How do you read what is on the crystals?

Working in IT I've worried for years that all of our information is being stored on devices that can be taken out by one good EMP. Stock markets, real estate and banking records, music, books, etc would be gone in a flash.

have we found any crystals or other artifacts from the ancient world that may have had any data embedding? That would be interesting to find out.

Seriously though whoever finds that crystal. Hopefully they will have the brain capacity to understand how to read it.
