Small distances, big forces

Abstract:
Chris Phoenix: An interesting and rather advanced piece of research has just been accomplished, measuring the van der Waals force that surfaces exert on nearby atoms.

It's interesting--sometimes there seems almost to be a party line that says "every new discovery about the nanoscale should be interpreted to show that nanomachines are difficult or impossible to build." The contrast between the press release and the actual paper is pretty striking.
