Understanding Terrifying Science Through Humor
is a new science moving faster than the speed of light might even take
over our world one day. Nanotechnology refers to the ability to create
and manipulate matter by precisely placing atoms and molecules.
is really an engineering process. We currently assemble things by using
large machines to build smaller ones or by taking gross matter and cutting
or molding it into steel, paper, plastic, etc., and then further cutting
and die casting to manufacture goods.
Nanotechnology might be two years off; it might be ten years off; it might be thirty years away. What is needed right now to complete the first stage of nano research is the concerted efforts of many disciplines to produce the first nanoscale machines which, as we said above, will replicate themselves and then follow their programs to place atoms and make matter.
