NEW YORK – It can store the information from a million CDs in a space no bigger than your little finger, and could keep it safe for
centuries. Is this some new electronic gadget? Nope. It's DNA.
This is one of the most interesting science stories I have read in a long time. This remarkable research has potential for archiving the works of
humankind in a very durable medium if it is stored properly. It also has the potential for a method of storing secrets in a form so hard to find as to
be near impossible to locate. Talk about a microdot.
I think the ability of humans to use something liker DNA to store our history is of great potential considering the way nature can wipe us out at any
time. We need a human knowledge backup that can survive centuries of time without losing data for the future generations.
