New Scientist - Nanotechnology may create new organs
Topic: Nano Tech 12:41 pm EDT, Jul 12, 2003

] The networks were etched on to 15 centimetre-wide silicon
] wafers and the paths were then used as a mould to set a
] layer of biodegradable polymer. Two of these were then
] sealed together with a microporous membrane sandwiched
] between them, producing a mini artificial vascular
] system.
] Endothelial cells - which are flat cells lining the walls
] of blood vessels in a single layer - were injected into
] the network on one side of the membrane and either liver
] or kidney cells were injected on the other side. The
] endothelial cells coated the inside of the polymer
] nanotubes. These nanotubes biodegraded to leave a living
] shell of vessels similar to a natural vascular network.
] This method would provide an efficient means of supplying
] the liver or kidney cells with enough oxygen and
] nutrients to survive.

Implications of Emerging Micro and Nanotechnology
Topic: Nano Tech 4:03 am EST, Jan  4, 2003

The Committee was tasked with evaluating the implications of current trends in micro- and nanotechnologies ... The committee applied rigorous technical scrutiny to claims for the potentials of these technologies, evaluated the state of the technologies today, and assessed their value ... [looking] for trends in scientific and technical advances with the potential to change the nature of warfare ...

Nanotechnology ... is an exciting and relatively unexplored scientific and technological frontier offering many new insights and applications but at the same time giving rise to much speculation and hyperbole. From an applications perspective, microtechnologies and nanotechnologies offer a particularly powerful combination [and] deserve careful consideration.

Scientists use alfalfa plants to harvest nanoparticles of gold: 8/02
Topic: Nano Tech 6:59 pm EDT, Aug 20, 2002

"Ordinary alfalfa plants are being used as miniature gold factories that one day could provide the nanotechnology industry with a continuous harvest of gold nanoparticles. "

This is rad!

Disarmament Diplomacy
Topic: Nano Tech 11:43 pm EDT, Jul 24, 2002

""I think it is no exaggeration to say we are on the cusp of the further perfection of extreme evil, an evil whose possibility spreads well beyond that which weapons of mass destruction bequeathed to the nation-states, on to a surprising and terrible empowerment of extreme individuals."
Bill Joy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems, April 2000"

Feynman's Talk
Topic: Nano Tech 5:41 pm EDT, Jul 24, 2002

"In the year 2000, when they look back at this age, they will wonder why it was not until the year 1960 that anybody began seriously to move in this direction."

Richard Feynman's talk on what we call nanotechnology. Most of you have probably already seen this, but its just a good read:)

They've Seen the Future and Intend to Live It
Topic: Nano Tech 2:03 pm EDT, Jul 16, 2002

Dr. Ralph C. Merkle is celebrated as an inventor of the encryption technology that allows secure transactions over the Internet. But that was a long time ago. These days, he is better known as a leading theorist of molecular nanotechnology, the still unperfected art of building machines that are little bigger than atoms.

Nanofactories will churn out everything from rocking chairs to rocket ships, superior to any ever made, at "the cost of potatoes and wood," in Dr. Merkle's words. Nanocomputers will interface directly with the brain, vastly increasing human intelligence. And nanobots will cruise through bloodstreams, banishing disease and debility.

It Slices! It Dices! Nanotube Struts Its Stuff
Topic: Nano Tech 2:03 pm EDT, Jul 16, 2002

It is stronger than steel and far sharper than a pin. It shoots electrons and draws away heat. It can become the thinnest of wires and, potentially, electronic devices almost as minuscule as molecules.

It is the nanotube, "the strongest material that will ever be made."

The prospect of a strand that is long, strong and thin conjures dreams of epic engineering like spinning a 22,300-mile-long cable out of nanotubes to tether a satellite in orbit around the earth, and then building an elevator that goes from the ground floor literally into outer space.

Make way for the space elevator!
