Jack Uldrich: For years, some of nanotechnology's more enthusiastic boosters have talked about the possibility of "nanobots" coursing through our veins and ridding our bodies of artery-clogging plaques and malignant cancer cells. To help conjure up the possibilities of nanotechnology, the mainstream press often latches onto to the easily digestible -- and much more visually pleasing -- vision of Raquel Welch in Fantastic Voyage being miniaturized and injected into the bloodstream of a prominent scientist to melt a deadly blood clot.
At the risk of incurring the wrath of both nanobot and Raquel Welch fans alike, both scenarios are a ways off, I'm sorry to report. This is not to say that nanotechnology isn't going to play a role in addressing the likes of heart disease, blood clots, and cancer. It is.
