Launch of Nanoshield Fund

Minden, NV | Posted on January 7th, 2008

The Lifeboat Foundation has launched the NanoShield Fund which will be used to turn their NanoShield program into reality.

LF International Spokesperson Philippe Van Nedervelde says, "While we won't be funding the development of massive utility fog curtains or orbiting laser platforms in the near future, we can do something today."

Currently this fund's goal is to pay for the Thermal Censorship of Ecophagy Study by Robert A. Freitas Jr. He has found preliminary evidence that diamond mechanosynthesis may not be reliable enough at ambient temperatures to sustain an existential risk from microscopic ecophagic replicators and needs to investigate this further.
