Hype, Part 2

Abstract:
Scientific American's Understanding Nanotechnology presents the cutting edge of a new technology that will find usage in medicine, space exploration, communications, manufacturing, and almost every other aspect of modern society. Imagine getting an injection of "smart" molecules that can seek out cancer cells and destroy them without harming any of the surrounding tissue. Imagine a simultaneous space launch of thousands of robotic probes, each no bigger than an insect, and each programmed to do a single task in concert with all of the others. And that's just the beginning. Nanotechnology is the future of science.

That's the breathless description of a book from the usually staid editors of SciAm.
