Vroom! Nanocars and Nanofactories (Podcast)
Date: February 15, 2007
Running Time: 00:28:20
Dr. Jim Tour, a chemist at Rice University, builds the world’s smallest vehicles. He calls them “nanocars,” and he thinks these tiny vehicles might lead to nano-sized factories. We’ll also hear from University of Florida graduate student Diane Hickey, who will tell us some of the interesting reactions she’s run into when explaining nanotechnology.
SmallTalk is a podcast series where we chat about nanotechnology with leading scientists, thinkers, artists, writers, and visionaries, and look at quirky nanoscience stories in the news.
