Precious Science Dollars Being Put to Good Use

Now this is cool:

The recordings on old records are now being saved through "a light sensor, originally designed to track the paths of subatomic particles such as bosons, to capture images of the record's groove" which are then persevered as a digital recording. From there they can remove all artifacts like pops and scratches and get a clean recording. That, like, rocks, man.
