How much information is there in the world?
The figures are worth thinking about – although we live in the age of mass production of information, we store this information on very vulnerable and transient data carriers with a very limited lifetime.
MOM – Memory of Mankind, has thought about it.
The project, created by Martin Kunze, intends to preserve today’s stories to enable the future to know their past.
In order to do so, ceramic data carriers which conserve analog text and images for unlimited intervals of time were developed.
The Memory of Mankind Archive is located deep in the world´s oldest salt mine in Hallstatt, Austria.
There, a data, written on ceramic data carriers, will be protected for at least 1 million years.
Here is the stage, Workshop of Photonics is excited to assist!
We will develop a laser system that will make it work – write down the data on ceramic tablets that will be stored for a million years.
