The numbers are in again and it seems that Americans are still largely ignorant of nanotechnology's existence.
Five years ago the Project on Emerging Technology commissioned a poll to determine the awareness of nanotechnology among the U.S. population. At the time, there was surprise that only 6 percent of Americans had "heard a lot" about nanotechnology, down from 10 percent in 2006.
It seems that in the years since, the number has slipped even further. Only 5 percent of the population now claims to have "heard a lot" about nanotechnology. It seems that a seemingly endless parade of public outreach projects hasn't raised the nation's nano-consciousness.
