These deserve more direct answers. • Will the uncertainty principle of quantum
physics make molecular machines unworkable? This principle states (among
other things) that particles can't be pinned down in an exact location for any
length of ...
Surgeons can see problems and plan actions, but they wield crude tools; drug
molecules affect tissues at the molecular level, but they are too simple to sense,
plan, and act. But molecular machines directed by nanocomputers will offer ...
THE LIMITS TO HARDWARE Is molecular machinery really the end of the road
where miniaturization is concerned? The idea that molecular machinery might be
a step toward a smaller "nuclear machinery" seems natural enough. One young ...
