Nanotechnology's Past, Present, and Future: A Congressional Perspective VIDEO When upstate New York Republican Congressman Sherwood “Sherry” Boehlert retired last year, the U.S. Congress lost its most passionate “cheerleader for science.”
What was it like to be present at the creation of the NNI? What are the promises and potential pitfalls of nanotechnology and nanomanufacturing, which many predict will enable “The Next Industrial Revolution”?
Robert Service, nanotechnology reporter at Science magazine, will interview former Congressman Boehlert about the beginnings of the NNI and about the future of this transformative technology.
