Atomic Storage

Ok... so in '59 this physicist called Richard Fenyman gave a lecture, saying that it was possible to store every word ever written (at that point) on a substance only 0.10 millimeters cubed. Insane? Possibly. Incorrect? Possibly not... See for yourself.

But that was back in '59 and atomic storage has come on a long way since then. IBM have done some work on it and have managed to obtain a storage density rate of 250T bits per square inch, which is 2,500 times denser than the 100G bits per square inch that can be stored on the most advanced conventional hard disk drives.
