From the BBC Tech News this morning; Net speed record smashed.
Scientists have set a new internet speed record by transferring 6.7 gigabytes of data across 10,978 kilometres (6,800 miles), from Sunnyvale in the US to Amsterdam in Holland, in less than one minute.
Cool! 😎 I could use me some of that bandwidth 🙂
The motivation for the record was the need to transfer and analyse the vast amounts of data produced by particle physicists studying the fundamental building blocks of matter…
During its research, Slac has accumulated the largest known database in the world, which grows at one terabyte per day.

Is this data going to be used or is it a bunch of wasted space??
Absolutely. Last year they celebrated 40 years of achievements, which includes three nobel prizes!
