构建一个安全的纳米技术的未来

根据某些人的观点我们即将迎来一场纳米技术革命,在那里物体被以比人眼所能看到的小几千倍的尺寸制造,而我们熟悉的材料将会有令人意外的表现。这场革命如果成功的话,将会颠覆整个世界。

纳米技术提高了我们对材料的控制以及提供了提高现有技术和开发新技术的机会。从建造更强、更轻的材料和制造功能极强但难以置信地小的电脑到开发新的可持续能源和设计个人化的癌症治疗方案,这里看上去有无限的机会。

现在市场上有超过500种不同制造商宣称生产的纳米技术消费产品,从化妆品到汽车零件以及餐具,应有尽有。如果现在的预测正确,那么纳米技术将有可能对每一个行业以及我们生活中的方方面面都产生影响。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

    The Holy Grail of Genetic Engineering

    CRISPR-Cas – a gene-editing technique that is far more precise and efficient than any that has come before it – is poised to change the world. But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
