A Cosmic Gathering of Eagles

A Cosmic Gathering of Eagles

It is my pleasure to announce that there has been a New Social Network Site put up in memory of Dr. Richard E. Smalley, who was a close friend and confidant. We loved to share our thoughts about the larger picture of how Nanotechnology will transform our own planet and beyond. The name of the new group is ” Cosmic Nanonauts Mission Control

I guess you could say we… Continue

Future planes, cars may be made of `buckypaper'

Future planes, cars may be made of `buckypaper' (AP)

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - It's called "buckypaper" and looks a lot like ordinary carbon paper, but don't be fooled by the cute name or flimsy appearance. It could revolutionize the way everything from airplanes to TVs are made.

Buckypaper is 10 times lighter but potentially 500 times stronger than steel when sheets of it are stacked and pressed together to form a composite. Unlike conventional composite materials, though, it… Continue

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
