What Do We Think About Nano? And Why?
As with many scientific concepts and fields, "nanotechnology" has entered the public lexicon, but few laypeople have more than a vague understanding of what it actually entails.
Depending on your perspective, that could be a good thing. For example, some of the protests over the health concerns about various nano-based products that have blown up in other countries haven't happened here. Others would argue that the lack of knowledge means that real risks could go unnoticed by the public.
Researchers who follow how public opinion is shaped are finding that views about nanotechnology are all over the map. In a new overview of that work, University of Wisconsin professor Dietram A. Scheufele, outlines what the studies show, and what they tell us about the future.
