Module One Post Fourteen [Pros and Cons of Nanotechnology]

Pros and Cons of Nanotechnology

This is a helpful website because it provides information about nanotechnology and it provides both sides of the story (pros and cons). Some pros are that nanotechnology can make more efficient energy sources and they can be smaller so that is good to conserve space. Also, medicine is better with nanotechnology because they can reduce side effects. Some cons of nanotechnology are other trade markets will fall because nanotechnology will be more efficient. Weapons can now be more powerful with Nanotechnology. It is expensive to develop.

Module One Post One [What is Nanotechnology]


What is Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is technology so small that humans can’t see it. This site explains how nanotechnology can help in many subjects like biology or physics. Richard Feynman is the scientist who made it on December 29, 1959. In 1 inch there is 25,400,000 nano-meters. The website is good because it is a government website and has lot’s of information and examples for most ages to understand.

Everything is the world has atoms and nanotechnology is about controlling those atoms. Even high school microscopes cannot see most forms of nanotechnology. The website helps because it explains that scientist who study nanotechnology need specific technology such as scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) and the atomic force microscope (AFM).

Now that people have discovered nanotechnology they have been trying to find new ways to use it.
