Dr. Robert Grass and his team of researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) encoded DNA with 83 kilobytes (Kb) of text comprising of the Swiss Federal Charter from 1291 and the Method of Archimedes, from the 10th century. The team proceeded to store the DNA in spheres made of silica before warming it to nearly 160 F, or 70 C for an entire week. That’s directly proportional to keeping it for 2,000 years at 50 F or 10 C. Upon removing the DNA from the silica sphere, the team decoded theDNA. The data was intact. Error-free.
