A lot of attention is paid to making data accessible as quickly as possible, but that comes at a price. There are situations — typically driven by regulations — where it is necessary to store data beyond the period during which you expect to use it.

Set to provide “editorial services and rich metadata for over 150 TV channels in Finnish, English and Swedish” and more, for Finnish cable TV company DNA, Ericsson is masterful at media.

No joke: Ancient eggshells good source of DNA

Scientists have found that fossilized eggs, some thousands of years old, are excellent sources of DNA. The ancient eggs from the extinct emus of Australia, moas of New Zealand, and elephant birds of Madagascar are prime examples of how this new technique is able to retrieve DNA from the shells.

Nicolaus Copernicus is considered the first scientist to have removed the Earth from the center of the solar system (universe at the time) and replaced it with the Sun. Now, 465 years later, forensic scientists confirm the location of Copernicus’ grave (and his remains) with hair DNA and computer reconstruction of his skull.
