1. The brains memory storage capacity equals 1 petabyte or 1000 terabytes.
The human brain is a perfect mechanism as we all know, but you can’t even imagine to what extent. Texas University scientists discovered that one synapse the space between your onal cells has the storage capacity of 4.7 bits. Knowing the whole number of synapses it turns out that the brains memory storage equals 1 petabyte and it is 10 times more than previously thought. If this volume of memory is present as a graphical file it’s printed version would be 7.9 inches wide and about 253 billion feet long and it is 1924 lengths of the earth’s equator.
