THE SCIENCE OF SMALL
It's been a while since I've posted anything about nanotechnology. So here's a double-shot: researchers have found a new source for building-block nanocrystals in an unlikely place, while tiny microbes have become a primary suspect in aiding the formation of New Mexico's Carlsbad Caverns. (Well, okay, so microbes aren't technically part of the field of nanotech; but heck, they are small.)

I can't say for sure why nanotech fascinates me so. Maybe it's because "nano" sounds somewhat reminiscent of "nanoo". As in, "nanoo-nanoo".
