Nanotech/Molecular Manufacturing

  1. May 15, 2005 #1
    Popularizations aside, what is the real potential of Nanotech and Molecular Manufacturing?
    Are they even possible?

    If they are, will they be much cheaper than the current manufacturing methods or much more expensive?

    what type of molecular manufacturing are you talking about?
    i would imagine that the individual placement of molecules or atoms would be very costly..
