As scientists develop the ability to work at levels thousands of times smaller than a human hair, a new world of possibilities—and critical concerns—opens up. This three-part series created by Fred Friendly Seminars explores the social, ethical, and personal implications of advances in nanotechnology. Hosted by Peabody award-winning journalist John Hockenberry, each program asks policymakers, researchers, and activists to wrestle with difficult but essential issues that will impact the environment, human health, public safety, and individual privacy.
