Summary:

Nano science represents an emerging technical tool set that has had a dramatic impact on virtually every field to which it has been applied. Bold initiatives and novel experimental methods have yielded remarkable advances in an extremely short period of time. The early days of the “space race” and the Manhattan Project are among the few comparable bursts of creative genius and focused collaboration in the past century, but the pace of development in both has waned considerably from their respective heydays. With the immense promise of nuclear science still conspicuously evident but not fully realized, its intersections with nano science represent a fertile frontier for exploration.
