Abstract One billionth of a meter, a distance the width of four silicon atoms: that's nanoscale, where a speck of dust would seem as large, relatively speaking, as a planet. This program travels around the world to immerse viewers in the concept of nanotechnology. By spotlighting nanotech luminaries-Harold Kroto, Gerd Binnig, James Heath, Sumio Iijima, James M. Tour-and innovations such as fullerenes, nano-cars, carbon nanotubes, and carbon nanohorns, From Micro to Nano creates a compelling composite picture of how nanotechnology came to be-and how it is being put to use. A clip of the incomparable Richard Feynman is also included. Produced by La Compagnie des Taxi-brousse in partnership with UER/EBU, EEC DG Research, CNC, Region L-R, PROCIREP-ANGOA, France5, UR, RTBF, and TFO.
