The Artemis Project and TransOrbital Inc. See his
Laingholm On The Launchpad, a "slightly irreverent monthly review of what's cooking in the space business."
SmallTalk is Vik's take on high tech, with his own twist!
While some researchers try to figure out how to create really tiny electrical
devices, others take on the practical task of figuring out how to make
wires small enough to connect them up to silicon chips with. Penn
State University has
a way of not only making very fine wires, but of spacing them out regularly
while they're at it. "We have known how to make smaller and smaller structures
by using techniques that have been developed for the fabrication of computer
chips, and we also have known how to make molecules bigger and bigger,"
says Paul Weiss, associate professor of chemistry at Penn State. "But that
intermediate region between the two approaches has been essentially inaccessible,
and our technique of using 'molecular rulers' represents a step toward
bridging that gap."
