The mechanosynthesis debate

Abstract:
Richard Jones: I think the debate has moved us further forward. I think it is clear that the Freitas proposal that sparked the discussion off does have serious problems that will probably prevent its implementation in its original form. But the fact that a proposal concrete enough to sustain this detailed level of criticism has been presented is itself immensely valuable and positive, and it will be interesting to see what emerges when the proposal is refined and further scrutinised.
