Taking the NanoPulse -- Nature Hike Through the Nanosphere - By Scott E. Rickert
We're rolling into the dog days of summer. Who wants to think about manufacturing? Or science? Or product development? What do you say we go outside and play? Let's take a nature hike in the Nanosphere. It's a big, green world out there, so let's take a few minutes to enjoy it.
Ok, you caught me. Our nature hike is a bit of an educational field trip, and we may learn something along the way about. Still, it gets us out into the garden, up in the forest, onto the beach. So let's see what we can see.
First stop, a sandy beach on the Atlantic Ocean. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Smell the salt air? That's the smell of nano. Natural processes, like sea spray, create nanoscale salt particles. The better to smell you with, my dear!
