Summary
_N is for Nanotechnolog_y is an "everyman's" look at how the future will be impacted by this sub-microscopic technology marvel. Nanotechnology is already revolutionizing the fields of material science and chemistry and helping global business and industry sectors from medicine to aerospace achieve new and exciting breakthroughs. This documentary explores the theories and initiatives of several leading nanoscience researchers and scientists, with regard to the potential of nanotechnology to revolutionize modern science and industry. Sensationalized through science fiction and the media, nanotechnology is often misunderstood by the general public. Will nano-sized robots perform molecular surgeries? Will self-replicating nanostructures help clean the environment or destroy the planet? N is for Nanotechnology explores the hype, hopes, and facts of this fascinating new field, as seen through the eyes of award-winning scientists, commercial innovators, and writers..
