Think of the smallest thing you can make -- A tiny paper airplane? A knot in a string? Now think of making something millions of times smaller. That's what nanotechnology is about. Nanotechnology scientists move around atoms and molecules to make amazing new devices. Imagine super-tape as sticky as a gecko's toes, tiny medical devices that can detect disease in seconds, or mini-gadgets powered by solar cells in your clothes.
