Living on nano time

Dr. James Baker, biologic nanotechnology professor at the University of Michigan, wrote yesterday:

Nanotechnology is a very young science and most of the breakthrough advances are in early stage development. Because it takes up to eight to ten years to get approval for new therapeutics, there will be a significant delay with many of the more remarkable applications for nanotechnology. Thus, the five-year window is less likely to bring unique change, whereas the ten to twenty year window is probably when the more remarkable applications will be seen.

My only question -- and it's probably a naive one, but it takes a simple man to ask a simple question -- is "why?"
