Published Debate Shows Weakness of MNT Denial

Attackers of molecular nanotechnology (MNT) received a setback today when a published debate revealed the weakness of their position. The four-part exchange between Eric Drexler, the founder of nanotechnology, and Nobelist Richard Smalley, who contends that many of Drexler's plans are impossible, is the cover story in the December 1 Chemical & Engineering News. “We have carefully examined the arguments presented by each side,” says Chris Phoenix, Director of Research at the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology (CRN). “We conclude that Smalley failed to show why MNT cannot work as Drexler asserts.” Phoenix has prepared a 6-page review of the Smalley-Drexler debate, including historical overview, technical analysis, and commentary on policy implications.
