Nanotechnology is the stuff that dreams and reality yearn for. Engines smaller than grains of sand inserted onto paper airplanes to allow them to soar for miles; carbon tubes strong enough to construct space elevators with; and probes that can enter your blood stream to clean up any clots, residue, or plaque build up. In fact, nanotechnology may burgeon a storm of possibilites considered pure science fiction at the moment such as dual-purpose toothpaste that cleans your teeth and glows a particular hue if you have cancer; or paper clips that keep pages intact while also having two cameras located at opposite ends of the metal strip. Which brings us to the topic of discussion: Should there be a limit on the uses of nanotechnology or should we explore our every whim with this industry?
