Nanotechnology in science

Nanotechnology has a wide potential in humanities

Wide potential

In very near future nanotechnology is likely to be widely hired by experts in a wide range of specialisations - chemistry, biology, engineering, physics and even philosophy and theology.

Advances in archeology

An opportunity to scrutinize archeological samples at nanoscale enables archeologists to find and study tiny traces which can say a lot about our past. For instance, tiniest particles of cosmic substances in the Earth's aged sediments can support the hypothesis that meteorites may have had considerable impacts on the planet and their environmental consequences were deadly for some species of plants and animals.

Robots "Nanotech"

Student Andrew Brett suggested: "We excavate to find different samples like tools, kitchen utensils, weapons and jewellery. I've got an idea to employ robots to do this job. Nanotech robots need to be of the size of an ant. Just like ants they can penetrate into the ground and remove it all, grain after grain, leaving only the particles they cannot identify as either soil or sand". Moreover, robots can exchange information and can assemble broken objects or find a missing mosaic fragment. Probably that nanorobots can get into the pharaohs' tombs and transmit the most accurate and detailed information from there without disturbing the dead.


I interviewed a partner in the group, and the result, along with my answers:
With first question have you heard about nanotechnology, agreed 2 of 2.
With second question: can you define what it means, I'm answered:Nanotechnology is something small and powerful.
With third question: do you think that nonatechnology can be applied in real life, agreed 2 of 2.
With fourth question: what areas can nanotechnology be applied in science, I'm answered: constructions, agriculture, space exploration and archeology.
With fifth question: are you happy with the current amount of information accessible to you and the time you can process it, agreed 2 of 2.
With sixth question: some researchers think that implanted chips will enable any person to transmit and receive any information telepathically. When do you think it'll happen, one thinks that after 50 years, the other thinks that after 100 years.
With seventh question: do you think the government should encourage research in nanotechnology and invest more money in it, two people think that nanotechnology can ultimately change peoples's life in a very positive way.
So, soon will join tight nanotechnology our lives. The future is not far off!
