Submission + - Quartz glass can preserve data for millions of years, Hitachi says (www.cbc.ca) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Researchers in Japan have come up with a novel way to store data — in a wafer of quartz glass — that could preserve it for eons. Electronics company Hitachi says this process protects the information in a durable, waterproof covering that could weather hundreds of millions of years with almost no degradation. Researchers created a prototype using pieces of quartz glass developed by Kyoto University — measuring two centimetres square and just two millimetres thick.
