Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about as much as The LHC Data Generated per Second
(a.k.a. Large Hadron Collider) (2008 figures)
Capturing millions of measurements per second on millions of subatomic particles, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) facility in Geneva generates 100 terabytes (tB) of data every second. Data collection arrays are placed throughout the LHC's 8.6 km (5.3 mi) circular track.
It's about nine-tenths as much as The Hubble Telescope
In other words, 107 terabytes is 0.860 times the amount of The Hubble Telescope, and the amount of The Hubble Telescope is 1.20 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Hubble Space Telescope, a.k.a. HST) (2008 figures)
Between its launch in 1990 and 2008, the Hubble Space Telescope gathered 120 terabytes (tB) of images and other data about astronomical phenomena. Last upgraded during a service mission in 1999, the onboard computer of the Hubble Telescope has just 0.00000190 terabytes of operating memory (RAM) — less than most smartphones.
