10 Tera-byte (10,000GB) Optical Disk
Romanian scientist is designing a 10,000 gigabyte optical disk
Romanian scientist, Eugen Pavel claims that a "hyper-CD-ROM" with 10 tera-bytes (10,000 giga-bytes) of storage could be available within a year.

The new technology is based on the recording of data on fluorescent photosensitive glass disks. Unlike normal CD-ROMs, which are only written on a single layer, the fluorescent technology should allow data to be written on over 10,000 layers. Furthermore, it should be stable for at least 5,000 years.
