Engines of Creation
This brilliant work heralds the new age of nanotechnology, which will give us thorough and inexpensive control of the structure of matter. Drexler examines the enormous implications of these developments for medicine, the economy, and the environment, and makes astounding yet well-founded projections for the future.

Gravity is neither more nor less implacable than other forces. No one can make a
boulder lose its gravity, but neither can anyone make an electron lose its electric
charge or a current its magnetic field. We control electric and magnetic fields by ...
They thus have obvious applications in energy storage. Further, antimatter
objects (made from the antiparticles of ordinary matter) may have utility as
negative electrodes in high-field electrostatic systems: the field would have no

electrodes in high-field electrostatic systems: the field would have no tendency to
remove positrons (as it would electrons), making mechanical disruption of the
electrode surface the chief limit to field strength. Such electrodes would have to
