A man named 'Smalley' is meant to be a king of the Small world. He was.

    Newer Older

    "Oct. 28, 2005 - Richard Smalley, the Nobel Prize-winning nanotechnology researcher who was also an ardent supporter of commercial nanotechnology development, died today of cancer. He was 62.

    Smalley shared the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1996 with Robert Curl and Sir Harry Kroto for discovering the C60 molecule, a soccer ball-shaped form of carbon called buckminsterfullerene, or buckyballs. " [more from Small Times]

    A humble tribute to a great man and his contribution to the world. A real pitty he passed away. He was so young. =(
    Rest in peace. You will be missed.

    More on Buckyballs.

    The talking of the small, is no small talking. (I am very smart at wordplay sometimes ;-P ). Neither the science, nor the business. If you want to know where the world is heading to, I recommend you reading some of the links I pointed at above. I remember I was in 3rd year (1994) reading an article from a business mag, from Peter Drucker in which he was saying something like: "Today everybody thinks that Fuji Film is the biggest competitor to the Eastman-Kodak empire. But Kodak is worried about another company: SONY. They fear digital."

    And here we are.

    I will never forget that example. IMO, Nanotech is today what Digital was 25 years ago. But of wider and larger scope of impact and relevance, as it is 'Digital-inside'. As I said once ;-) : Nanotech is the ultimate Eclecticism. |-)

    Watcha think, Earthens??? 0-)

      Super! Done.- There´s someone around who has plenty of material to feed this group. ;-)

      J... pliz?

      Maybe already touched on... didn't read all of the above-- but I see this is a picture one may wear 3-D glasses for?

      I think this is an emblematic photo to add to this page (I missed that note you added on it in time, Steve)
