Shoot The Moon

Talk about off-site backups…

Talk about off-site backups… TransOrbital wants to store a backup of your data in a safe place. Like on the Earth’s Moon, for example. PC Magazine has an article about it, the best quote is:

The moon is a pretty safe place to store your data.

Well, I suppose it might be relatively safe, but I’d think a RAIS (or Redundant Array of Inexpensive Satellites) might be another alternative.

So when you need to do a restore from backup, do you need to suit up for a lunar mission first?
