Home > Press > NanoRosetta Kickstarter project - Printing and archiving the Human genome for the next 10,000 years using nanotech

Abstract:
NanoRosetta uses a new photolithography method to print microscopic, analog data on nickel discs and is looking to change the way we think about the long-term archiving of data. With a lifespan of 10,000 years, no other technology can match the durability and longevity of these discs for archival preservation of information, and because of the microscopic size of the images printed on the discs, NanoRosetta is able to print high volumes of data that were once thought to be unprintable.

NanoRosetta Kickstarter project - Printing and archiving the Human genome for the next 10,000 years using nanotech

Santa Fe, NM | Posted on April 4th, 2013

To showcase this paradigm-shifting technology for the archival industry, NanoRosetta has launched a crowd-funding Kickstarter project to print and archive all 3.2 billion characters of the Human genome on five nickel discs about the size of CDs. Previously, this task would have required a room of books to archive the information as analog data. Now, the data is so compact and durable that a set of these discs can be framed and displayed on a home or office wall. With paper archiving strategies that allow for data to be stored for 300 years, and microfilm strategies that allow for storage of 500 years, the ability to store information for 10,000 years is groundbreaking.

In order for this crowd-funding project to be successful, NanoRosetta is looking for support from funders. In return, funders will be participating in a long-term archiving project and will be provided with a set of discs containing the Human genome to display on their walls.
