Sir Harry Kroto, a 1996 Chemistry Nobel prize laureate, discusses design projects and other creative work he has done throughout his career in addition to his illustrious scientific achievements during a presentation at Averett University's student center Monday.
A Q&A with Kroto follows:
Q: What is nanotechnology? What possibilities does it open up?
A: Nanotechnology is nothing new. It's just chemistry of the 21st century. Nanotechnology, there are several definitions. It's atom-by-atom, molecule-by-molecule assembly of a complex organism or system. That's what you are. You are the result of nanotechnology. You are a blueprint. You've been assembled. It's not new. It's as old as life itself. It's not just little things. It's engineering on a nano scale. It's just got fantastic possibilities. The fantastic thing about science — it's totally unpredictable.
