      Nanotechnology has nothing to do with "antigravitational research."

      Nanotechnology is the manipulation of matter at the atomic/molecular
      scale. Advanced nanotechnology concepts include self-replicating
      nanorobotic assemblers, "eutactic" and "diamondoid" electronic and
      mechanical nanosystems, and molecular-level repair or restructuring
      of living tissue - concepts which are unproven, but not generally
      inconsistent with known physics or other scientific knowledge.

      In contrast, speculations about "electromagnetic/gravitational
      interactions" which could be exploited to create an "antigravity"
      technology are inconsistent with known physics and have no basis
      other than fantasy.
