Is mechanosynthesis feasible? The debate continues.

Abstract:
Richard Jones: In my post of December 16th "Is mechanosynthesis feasible? The debate moves up a gear," I published a letter from Philip Moriarty, a nanoscientist from Nottingham University, which offered a detailed critique of a scheme for achieving the first steps towards the mechanosynthesis of diamondoid nanostructures, due to Robert Freitas. The Center for Responsible Nanotechnology’s Chris Phoenix began a correspondence with Philip responding to the critique. Chris Phoenix and Philip Moriarty have given permission for the whole correspondence to be published.
