Nanoscience is the fastest growing and most significant area of scientific exploration of our time In Nanoscience: Giants of the Infinitesimal, award-winning science writer Peter Forbes and sculptor Tom Grimsey explore the amazing possibilities that nanotechnology offers us, from clean harvesting solar energy and finding cost-effective methods to desalinate sea water, to the production of smart materials that alter their shape, texture or other properties when coming into contact with electric or magnetic fields. Nanoscience shows the astonishing beauty of the nanoworld, the iridescense of butterfly wings or peacock feathers that is produced not by pigments but by structures invisible to the naked eye. Science looks out into deep space in wonder but our actual presence there will always be limited. We look deep into the heart of the atom but can only understand its structure by breaking it. Between these two ends of the spectrum is nanoscience, the fastest growing and most significant area of scientific exploration of our time.
