MDISC : EMP Proof Post-Atomic Data Storage For 1000 Years


A carbon substrate provides the equivalent of your data carved in stone.

Has to be regarded as the ultimate safety measure for storing and archiving digital data.

The U.S. military put this tech through rigorous testing before it was available to civilians.

I intend to order one of the drive burners as soon as I have the money for my SAMBA-based network in the research lab.

"However according to the French National Laboratory of Metrology and Testing at 90°C and 85% humidity the DVD+R with inorganic recording layer such as M-DISC show no longer lifetimes than conventional DVD±R.[9]" via https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M-DISC#cite_note-9

The paper cited (I have not read this yet) http://www.lne.fr/publications/guides-documents-techniques/syylex-glass-dvd-accelerated-aging-report.pdf

Besides which, this strategy presupposes the existence of reading devices. Complexity is fragile.


If you are looking to create a "Super-Durable Bootstrap 20th-early 21st Century Civilization Manual", I have some ideas I could bat around, and perhaps Kickstarter or GoFundMe would provide the necessary funds to implement it.

Dave Narby -

This would make a terrific idea for crowd funding once I get Vault-Co on YouTube.

I'd be interested in hearing more.
