- Sep 2, 2002Nanotechnology 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.
