One millions nanotubes could fit into this period.

Abstract:
... over the past year and a half, scientists and consumer advocates have begun to worry about the unintended consequences of such technologies.

Now, a half-dozen US and foreign regulatory agencies are grappling with how -- and whether -- to protect consumers, lab workers and the environment from the next big thing in science and shopping. Nanotechnology research will receive $1 billion in federal funding this year -- roughly 10 percent of which will be funneled toward studies of the technology's risks.
