Happy Birthday, CD!

The CD is 25 years old today. On August 17, 1982 the very first compact disc, "The Visitors" by ABBA, rolled off the production line at a Philips factory in Langenhagen, just outside of Hanover, Germany.

While the Compact Disc format was originally designed for music storage and playback, the format was later adapted to hold any form of binary data. If you've ever wondered how they work, check out How Stuff Works' guide.
