Joel N. Myers, the founder of Accuweather, states that 99% of all innovation and development has happened in the past 100 years whereas humans have been on the planet for 100,000 years. That means that 99% of all progress has occurred in 1/10th of 1% of human history.
When it comes to technology, Myers states that we are creating 2.5 billion of gb of data every day and of all data that has ever been recorded and entered...95% has been created within the past 2 years.
A company has recently found a way to "encode" data onto DNA strands. One gram of DNA can hold up to 455 exabytes of data.
The company estimates that there is approximately 1.8 zettabyte of data in the world in 2011. That would be the equivalent of about 4 grams (about of teaspoon) of DNA to hold all information from Pluto, to Shakespeare to every video, post, etc on Facebook, instagram, tiktok and snapchat today.
If you unraveled all of the DNA in your body, it would span about 34,000,000 miles reach Pluto and back a total of 13 times. Pluto is 2,660,000,000 miles away.
Encode All Data onto only 4 grams of DNA:
Your DNA Can stretch from Earth to Pluto 13 times:
