Nanotechnology and Our Energy Challenge

Abstract:
Richard Smalley: Iíve increasingly begun to believe that a grand challenge before us - the world and humanity - is what I call ďthe terawatt challenge.Ē Iíve been looking into the energy issue and Iíve been on a quest for terawatts, or trillions of watts of electricity. What Iím looking for is to solve what I believe is the most important problem facing humanity, the problem of generating energy of the magnitude that we will need in this century for what could very well turn out to be ten billion people on the planet.
