School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 5-9An excellent introduction to nanotechnology. After a brief historical overview of the science of making miniature machines, Darling discusses the development of the microchip and small mechanical motors. He clearly explains how a micromachine part is made and how a Scanning-tunneling microscope is able to see and manipulate atoms individually. The full-diagrams and illustrations add significantly to the understanding of the text. A fascinating look at an emerging technology.Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, VA
This book explores the incredible realm of the ultrasmall machine and the serious issues raised by this technology.
