    The Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle mapped the neural connections of a mouse brain. Then, the institute developed a software program to assemble the images into a 3D volume and created a connectome. Five electron microscopes continuously ran for five months and collected over 100 million images of 25,000 slices of the mouse’s visual cortex. By the end of their research, they collected 1. Each slice was 40 nanometers thick. 8 petabytes of data (that’s equivalent to 24 years of HD footage).
