The brave new world of the nano

A mysterious technology is about to transform our lives, but scientists say it needs more debate, writes Deborah Smith. Put Hollywood and Michael Crichton together and you've got the next big science scare. When a film based on the best-selling author's thriller Prey - featuring tiny robots that run amok - hits the big screen, it could do for nanotechnology what his Jurassic Park did for cloning. No matter how hard researchers have tried, there is no catchy way to describe a nanometre, no simple comparison that gives meaning to the term at the heart of the science set to transform our lives.
