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.
