With funding from the Kavali Institute and narrated by Alan Alda, this video provides a brief introduction to nanoscience, looking back at Richard Feynman's "There's plenty of room at the bottom..." speech 50 years later, and reflecting on how far we've come with nanoscale research and possible future potential.
- Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
- Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
- Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
- Nanotechnologies—and their costs, utility, risks, and benefits—are closely interconnected with society and with our values.
