dc.description.abstractMany theorize what the future holds, complete with cliché flying cars and robotic maids, but what if those seemingly imaginary theories became real?Imagine a doctor planning your surgery using a microscopic robot to get into those hardto-reach parts of your body, or better yet—eating a hamburger or hot dog made from your daily garbage.As crazy and futuristic as it may sound, nanotechnology may hold the key to advancing society into a whole new age of technology.Like most sciences, though, there is a flip side:science at such a tiny level, 10-9 meters to be exact, has as many potential dangers as it does advantages.en
