On this week’s Please Explain, we'll learn about nanotechnology: technology on the scale of atoms and molecules that's measured in nanometers (which equal a millionth of a millimeter). Mike Treder, Executive Director of the Center for Responsible Nanotechnology and Sanjiv Sam Gambhir, M.D., Ph.D., Division Chief of Nuclear Medicine at Stanford University's School of Medicine, tell us how nanoscience could change the future of manufacturing.
