Nano-surgeons break the atomic bond

Abstract:
The ultimate in surgery has been carried out in a vibration-free bunker in deepest Birmingham. Not only have scientists working there managed to remove a single atom of matter, measuring about a tenth of a millionth of a millimetre across, but they have achieved this feat even though their subject was thrashing around wildly.

The feat is the ultimate in the science of the small, nanotechnology, that the practitioners hope will one day help to remove contaminants from the environment.
