Three nano-technologists win the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for building miniature machines out of molecules 2016 technology
This year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry has been awarded to three scientists who figured out how to build tiny machines out of molecules. The machines, which include a nano-sized car, are invisible to the human eye and have important implications in medicine and other fields. These machines are molecules with tiny movable parts that move in controlled ways and are a thousand times thinner than a strand of hair. The actual development of the machines by today’s Nobel laureates was a big step forward for nanotechnology and may be useful in medicine and energy storage.
