The study reported that the institute’s team had stored all 154 Shakespeare sonnets, a photo, a PDF of a scientific paper, and a 26-second sound clip from US civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jnr’s “I Have a Dream” speech in a barely visible bit of DNA in a test tube.

Ladies an gentleman, the future is here.

If you haven’t read about this, do it now.  

I think I’m going to reblog this like 15 million times.
