"Nanobliss is a gallery of visualizations of small-scale structures of carbon nanotubes and silicon, created by John Hart."
I came for the awesome Nanobamas [Flickr set here]
, but was impressed enough with the rest to share the whole. Enjoy---particularly the informative techniques
page. At the very least, have a look at some of the pretty nano pictures.

"The ribbons are transparent, flexible, and conduct electricity. Weight for weight, they are stronger than steel sheets, yet a square kilometre of the material would weigh only 30 kilograms. 'This is basically a new material.'"
Applications could include flexible TV screens, light panels and that digital paper they keep telling us is coming soon.

Here's a little more nano for your Tuesday: carbon nanotubes
. Currently in the r&d phase, this article promises that they could become hot stuff and technologically indispensible..."They are stronger than steel and as flexible as plastic, conduct energy better than almost any material ever discovered and can be made from unexotic raw materials such as methane gas."

Japanese artist builds a sculpture of a bull that can only be seen with an electron microscope. It's the size of a single red blood cell. Next? Christo will wrap the head of a pin in pink tissue paper, I assume.
