Biplanes & Nanofactories

Abstract:
Mike Treder: Lord Kelvin's famous pronouncement, "Heavier than air flying machines are impossible," made in 1895 while he was president of Britain's Royal Society, has become cliche for advocates of new technologies. We sometimes use it ourselves when answering those who are skeptical about molecular manufacturing.

Of course, many -- if not most -- new technologies touted as "revolutionary" fail to live up to the hype. It's understandable why someone today would doubt CRN's claims that advanced nanotechnology will bring transformative and disruptive impacts to society within the next decade or two.
