Royal Society in Denial

Denial of molecular manufacturing is not limited to the United States. Britain's Royal Society has been working for a bit over a year to address concerns about nanotechnology, with initial impetus provided by Prince Charles's worries about 'gray goo'. Although gray goo is not a high-priority concern, the idea originated in studies of molecular manufacturing, and was introduced to the public -- along with the word 'nanotechnology' -- in Eric Drexler's book, Engines of Creation.
