Stephen Fry Introduces the Strange New World of Nanoscience

What is nano? And how will nanoscience (the study of phe­nom­e­na and manip­u­la­tion of mate­ri­als at the nanoscale) shape our future, from the way we build hous­es to how we cure dis­eases? It’s all explained in a snap­py 17 minute video nar­rat­ed by Stephen Fry (British writer, actor and direc­tor). Pro­duced in part­ner­ship with Cam­bridge Uni­ver­si­ty, NANO YOU was named the best short film at the Scin­e­ma Sci­ence Film Fes­ti­val in 2010.
