Nanotechnology

Last night I was listening to a radio program about nanotechnology that was

fascinating. I don’t know very much about it other than it’s a science of

manipulating atoms and molecules on a very small level.

What was so fascinating about it were the technologies the guy described

that were being created with the technology. He described a surveilance

technology that has the capability of taking video, audio, and other

measurements, and of communicating them back to somewhere that is the size

of a dust particle and is light enough to float on air. Imagine the

possibilities for fighting terrorism or for medical research.

The guy also talked about two announcements that have been made in the past

month by two different companies saying they had been able to harnass solar

energy in a way never before accomplished. They have been able to create

solar cells that are 100 times smaller and 100 times more efficient than

previous solar panels. He said the University of Toronto has been talking

about creating “solar paint” which is paint that would be able to generate

electricity from the suns energy. He sais theres more than enough energy

to power all cars coming from the sun every day if we could harness it with

this technology. This could solve all of the worlds energy problems.

Cool!
