Imagine a "spaceship" so tiny that it could travel through the human body to pinpoint and release drugs to kill cancer cells or use tools to unclog arteries in the heart. It may sound like science fiction, but according to a physicist from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, the idea lies in the realm of possibility in the near future.
That's because of a science called nanotechnology, the study and use of matter on an extraordinarily small scale.
The professor said that nanotechnology "will explode in a positive way in 10 to 20 years," so he and other organizers at BGU are hoping to attract private businesses to the Negev to start a "Nano-Bio Valley," modeled after Northern California's "Silicon Valley."
