Technology Update. Episode 3
The biggest things in science and technology are actually miniscule. In this edition of Technology Update, we look at how scientists are engineering the world of the very small – how they’re building the future of nanotechnology.
From making tiny tubes of carbon only one atom thick that could one day support an elevator that travels to space, to a company in Siberia that makes brilliant red diamonds from ordinary graphite, we’re showing how Russian scientists and engineers are leading the world in designing these tiny triumphs.
We also profile a forgotten Russian genius who discovered the world’s first “nano-device” – something we couldn’t live our modern lives without.
