Dr. David Lemberg
Host - Science and Society

San Diego, CA | December 26, 2005

Dr. David Lemberg, Executive Producer of "Science and Society" announces the show schedule for Wednesday, 12/28/05, 1PM to 2PM Pacific.

This week “Science and Society” reprises our wonderful 7-27-05 program.

Of particular interest to Nanotechnology Now readers are interviews with:

  • Neil Gordon, President, Canadian Nanobusiness Alliance
  • Dr. Peter Will, Director, Microsatellite Systems Center, USC; Division Director, Distributed Scalable Systems Division, USC Information Sciences Institute; and Research Professor in Industrial and Systems Engineering, Materials Sciences, and the Astronautics and Space Technology Division
  • USC Professor John C. Zarnecki, Principal Investigator, Huygens Science Surface Package, and Professor of Space Science, Planetary and Space Sciences Research Institute (PSSRI), The Open University (Milton Keynes, UK)

Mr. Gordon discusses what governments could be doing better to put nanotechnology on the national agenda; CANEUS, an international consortium for commercializing micro and nano technologies for the aerospace and defense sector; and the most important factors that developers and entrepreneurs should consider when seeking commercial opportunities in nanotechnology.

Dr. Will discusses reconfigurable robots, Superbot, applications of micro-robots and nano-robots, and challenges in robotics relating to society and technology.

Professor Zarnecki discusses the Cassini–Huygens Mission to Saturn and Titan, the Science Surface Package, what Titan tells us about origins of life on Earth, where we go next, and the value and benefits of international collaboration in space.
