The beginning:
Nanotechnology: Will it Change the World?
There is a great interest in and a lot of research on nanotechnology in the scientific world today. The idea that technologies can be made on the smallest of scales by manipulating atoms and molecules is very appealing and numerous applications come to mind. Practically any material could be manipulated and minuscule, molecular objects could be made, while the technologies impacted could potentially include but are not limited to the pharmaceutical, IT and all manufacturing industries.
