Chris Phoenix: Recently, I have seen a number of significant (sometimes breakthrough) advances in practical molecular construction techniques. These are not just milestones, like the first engineered protein fold; they are stepping stones.
If a large country or company put a Manhattan project-like focus on MM--not a total redirection, just hiring a few thousand scientists--starting today, I think we could certainly have biomolecule-based MM in well under ten years, and maybe less than five. If someone has been focusing on it for the past ten years, we could have it any time now.
