Nanotubes bounce bullets… in theoryPosted by Jon under News , nanotechnology

ref. source RSC's Chemistry World Blog

Jon recommends that we check out Nanotechproject from Pew-Woodrow Wilson Centre for Scholars for more on how we should combat bad nanoscience.

Repeat pointer Nanoproject :
History:
The Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies was established in April 2005 as a partnership between the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Pew Charitable Trusts.
Mission:
The Project is dedicated to helping ensure that as nanotechnologies advance, possible risks are minimized, public and consumer engagement remains strong, and the potential benefits of these new technologies are realized.

Big help for tiny technology Posted by Jon under nanotechnology
The University of Massachusetts Amherst and partners have announced the launch of the National Nanomanufacturing Network (NNN), funded by the National Science Foundation. This open access network will allow academic, governmental and industrial bodies to share information and collaborate on nanomanufacturing projects, and provides an online “clearinghouse” for new ideas and research.
Meanwhile, a Royal Society-led committee has released a proposed draft of the “Responsible NanoCode”, a voluntary set of guidelines aimed at standardising the operation of nanotechnology-centred organisations. The seven principles detailed include procedures involding operational, environmental and ethical responsibility, compiled by representatives from many different organisations.
