The entire armor is composed of extraordinarily sophisticated microscopic (probably nanoscopic in the more recent suits) chain mail which have several layers providing different suit functions.
The EPA is another reason – we pay to remove nanoscopic quantities of asbestos and TCE from out water.
But that could well be a real problem to solve – design me an intron depot so I can manage the traffic flow of nanoscopic drug delivery cars.
Willcocks added that the bases would file in order through the pore because at that nanoscopic scale, the current flowing through the pore was equivalent to a bolt of lightning.
However, thanks to a number of new so-called “nanoscopic” fluorescence techniques Hell, 2007, the diffraction barrier itself has been breached with what may soon provide electron microscope type resolution for standard fluorescence imaging applications.
Unlike other experimental nanoscopic transistors, the new components require neither complex manufacturing nor cryogenic cooling.
In our nanoscopic corner of the universe, we transiently understand that the laws of quantum dynamics, thermodynamics and evolution as we perceive them (underscore on 'as we preceive') are in effect within the biosphere on our little spinning orb whether some us believe it to be or not.
Even at the nanoscopic level, Superman is still able to fire off his JLA emergency transmitter, which is picked up by Batmanâ€™s communicator.
When Batman finally tracks down Superman, thanks to the handy nano-microscope on his utility belt itâ€™s right there next to the shark repellant, readers get to see what the world is like at the nanoscopic level.
From Ohio University Research News: âThis man-made structure is one of the first nanoscale, non-branched fractal molecules ever produced, â said (George) Newkome, who is lead author on the Science paper and also serves as dean of the Graduate School and the James and Vanita Oelschlager Professor of Science and Technology at the University of Akron. âBlending mathematics, art and science, these nanoscopic hexagonal-shaped materials can be self-assembled and resemble a fine bead necklace.
