Innovations find home in old mill

Abstract:
It's hard to fathom that an old, dilapidated mill in downtown Springfield will soon be home to the cutting-edge science of nanotechnology.

It's equally tough to get one's mind around both the new science and the products that will eventually come from the bowels of the 76-year-old MFA building at Boonville Avenue and Phelps Street, items the likes of which the world has never seen.

(Ed.'s note: "Nanotechnology is a fast-growing, multi-billion dollar global industry that develops carbon-based microscopic computers and machines for every day uses." - this is the first time I've seen this definition. Want to learn the actual definition? See our Introduction pages. Another interesting definition "... carbon nanotubes, microscopic, graphite-like structures composed of carbon that work like tiny machines." - unfortunately, nanotubes don't "work like tiny machines" - there is nothing machine-like to them; they are just another unique material that can be used in a variety of ways, and have vast potential.)
