Bipartisan call for more US nano spending

from the politicians-in-lovefest-for-nanotech dept.
Smalltimes reports on what surely could be called a nanotech lovefest at a Senate hearing. Here's a sample: "In the coming years, nanotechnology research funded by the National Science Foundation could aid the development of electronic circuits and devices from a single atom or molecule," said Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Science, Technology and Space. "Who knows what potential that may have for medicine, for technology, even for homeland security?"…[Gingrich, a Republican:] "The explosion of knowledge in nanoscale science and technology and in the quantum behaviors associated with that scale, from smaller than one atom to about 400 atoms, represents a profound transformation in our understanding of the natural world," Gingrich said. "Every member of Congress should take time to learn the basics of nanoscale activities and the potential of quantum behaviors."
