Cheap and clean energy. Reduced environmental pollution. Greater computing power. Solutions to world hunger and national security. Cures for devastating diseases such as cancer. All of these could result from nanotechnology, a promising new field involving the design and manipulation of matter at the molecular and atomic levels. But there are plenty of uncertainties about how nanomaterials might affect human health and the environment. Learn more about nanotechnology’s potential benefits and how scientists are dealing with the risks.
**Note: this is a repeat performance of the Science Pub on Nanotechnology held in March 2008.
