Nanotechnology: The next big thing is very small

I wrote an article to the newspaper. Here is the first paragraph…

Nanotechnology will probably be the buzz word of the century when all is said and done by the end of the 21st century. It is predicted to have implications in human lives and the planet’s future in fields such as medicine, engineering, food, energy, environment and many other important areas. Simply stated nanotechnology is the use of nanoscience (Nano-scale manipulations of materials) for useful purposes. One of the better definitions of nanotechnology is by M Meyyappan, at the NASA Ames Research Center where he states that Nanotechnology is “Creation of useful or functional materials, devices and systems through control or manipulation of matter on the nanometer length scale and exploitation of novel phenomenon and properties (physical, chemical, biological) which arise because of the nanometer (nm) scale” – See more at: http://www.nation.lk/edition/free/item/29943-nanotechnology-the-next-big-thing-is-very-small.html#sthash.k7PyNjBG.dpuf
