Remember the titans (of industry)

Abstract:
Will the chemistry of these smart materials shape the industries of the 21st Century just as glass, steel and aluminum shaped the last? Noted blogger and futurist Glenn Reynolds certainly thinks so. "Materials science," he avers, "isn't sexy the way that, say, robots are sexy, but when you can cut the weight or boost the strength of aircraft or spacecraft or even automobiles by a factor of 10 or 50, the consequences are enormous. Ditto for killing germs or even detecting them in short order."
