Scientists at the University of Southampton in England have found a new way to preserve data- music, images, and video files- inside glass discs using nanotechnology.  Glass does not rot or decay and has an estimated life of 13.8 billion years according to scientific estimates.  This particular type of glass can store 3000 times the amount of data contained on a typical Blue-Ray disc and is about the size of a quarter.

Now think back to the cinematic depiction of Superman's Fortress of Solitude where information  from his home planet was stored on what appeared to be completely transparent glass rods.
