From Smart Materials to Nanotechnology

Hour 1: From the archives – How will nanotechnology change our lives in the future and what exciting advances are happening in the field of materials development today? We spent an hour in August with Yale University Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Ainissa, G. Ramirez, Ph.D., who was in town to lecture at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History.

    Has research been done to determine how nano particles react in the human body and do we know about health risks associated with using cosmetics or sun screen which contain nano particles?

     Research is ongoing on the interaction between nano particles and the body.  However, it is up to smart listeners like you to keep asking manufacturers to disclose their findings.
