- Michio Kaku explains the possible implications of nanotechnologies on society. But what exactly is nanotechnology?
Nanotechnology deals with structures at the nanoscale. Making and manipulating at this scale can give us technology that would be inaccessible otherwise. Nanotechnology and nanoscience are the study of how extremely small structures can be applied to technology, science, engineering, chemistry, biology, and more. To get an idea of how small nanotechnology is, there are 25,400,000 nanometers in an inch and if a marble were a nanometer, than one meter would be the size of the Earth! Nanotechnology wants to control individual molecules and atoms. Nanotechnology has existed for a very long time however, we haven’t been able to make any real progress till now. Recent technologies have helped us make some really cool nanotechnologies. Learn More
