'Fantastic Voyage' Not So Far-Fetched

Abstract:
A new paper published in the May 2009 issue of the oldest continuously published magazine in the United States, Scientific American, asks readers to imagine producing vehicles so small they would be about the size of a molecule and powered by engines that run on sugar. To top it off, a penny would buy a million of them. Today, researchers can steer nanomachines, use them to convey cargo, and guide them using electromagnetic forces or chemical interactions. All of this, they say, makes the world seen in "Fantastic Voyage" not so far-fetched.
