Abstract:
USC will host a 50th Anniversary reflection on Richard P. Feynman's influential talk "There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom".

Feynman Anniversay Event to be Held at USC

Columbia, SC | Posted on January 23rd, 2010

On 29 December 1959, Feynman addressed the American Physical Society with this vivid and eloquent talk, describing a world that would become possible when scientists controlled matter precisely at the level of molecules, atoms and even electrons.

In February 1960, the Caltech magazine Engineering & Science published Feynman's "Plenty of Room", and it has been re-published ten times since then. This has become one of the best-known papers in the history of nanotechnology.

The fiftieth anniversary of the initial publication of "Plenty of Room" presents us with an opportunity to reflect upon Richard Feynman's legacy in nanotechnology. The University of South Carolina will convene a symposium to consider the talk, the man, and the field of nanotechnology during the past fifty years. The Symposium takes place at the University of South Carolina on Friday and Saturday, 12 and 13 February 2010.
