A little something about parallels

The thought of parallel universes would almost seem to be a most unlikely prediction of our place in relativity but there have been some amazingly bizzare coinsidances and occurances that relate directly to the theory, In both my life yours and the rest of the world.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
