All Hubble data on 120 new Seagate hard drives?

Seagate, my sponsor, is getting ready to ship 1TB hard drives. I’ve always wondered why I’d want more than one. Now I have a good reason. Wired News is reporting that Google is working with Space Telescope Science Institute to make one of the largest transfer of data the world has ever seen: 120 terabytes. Whew.

All the data that the Hubble telescope has ever captured.

  1. I remember my first PC had 4.3 GB and I used to wonder what in the world I would need so such space for…. now I have more than 600 GB and still need some more space…

    one thing I do know now is no matter how much space you have, its never enough !!!

    Now I am waiting when I am gonna be able to run my PC entirely on solid state storage… that would be cool.. at least for now…
