NASA Now Minute: Nanotechnology and Space


[ Sound Effects ] Zooming in on nanotechnology. The world’s first nanoscale
book was published back in April 2007. Using Nanotechnology scientists
from Simon Fraser University in Canada carved letters
into 30 micro tablets using a gallium-ion beam. My name is Dr. Michael Oye and I
work on nanotechnology over here at the Center for Nanotechnology at the NASA Ames
Research Center. I’m currently working
on these nanowires. And you can imagine that
this nanowire is so small that you can’t see it with
your eyes you have to look at it underneath a microscope. You can imagine this can be
potentially woven into clothing as long as you can bend this you
generate power you can also put them into flags for example
you might be able to put them into a material that can
flap in the wind and by doing so you can generate power
just by the mechanical motion. Be sure to tell your teachers to visit the NASA Explorer
Schools virtual campus. [ Music ]
