Nanoscience refers to the ability to manipulate individual atoms and molecules, making it possible to build machines on the scale of human cells or create materials and structures from the bottom up with novel properties. Nanoscience could change the way almost everything is designed and made, from automobile tires to vaccines to objects not yet imagined.
