Green Nanoenergy Resources In The Age of Nanoscience Technologies

http://www.wbabin.net/eeuro/shrair5.pdf
Abstract
Nanoscience technology is the ability to arrange, control and combine atoms and
molecules at the nanoscale. This ability can equip us with the know-how to build
electrical, biological and mechanical nano-micromachines that can replace most of
today’s manufacturing processes and tools.
The impact of nanotechnology on scientific progress, economic and social development
is going to be enormous. If we look towards the domain of health care, nanomedicine
can reduce existing costs substantially and cure most, if not all, currently incurable
diseases. Nanotechnology products that are being developed in a number of industries
can have great benefits for space applications and deep space exploration missions.
In the energy sector, which is the biggest and the most challenging issue facing us,
advances in nanotechnology can solve certain issues successfully; fossil fuels can
become cleaner, safer and cheaper to produce, in a more environmentally friendly
manner. Renewable resources can become cheaper to produce and easier to
implement. In the domain of nuclear energy, Uranium-based reactors would be safer,
smaller in size, and more cost effective, while their radioactive byproducts can be
recycled.
More importantly, nanostructured material and new laser devices can be developed that
will allow us to extract nuclear energy without resorting to brute-force methods and
radioactive byproducts. Furthermore, as we approach the limits of Moore's Law,
nanotechnology breakthroughs are vital for constructing faster computers that will allow
artificial intelligence to develop rapidly.
Integrated nano-microsystems would benefit researchers in the field of human biology. A
correlation between mind-body connection and other communications external to the
body can be found and the field of biological morphogenesis and telepathy would take
great leap forward.
But, the idea of singularity and that an algorithmically-programmed computer can
develop human-like consciousness can be considered as ludicrous. The human brain is
not only a neurological machine. Even on the arithmetic level, the processing power of
the human brain is unknown. While on the one hand theoreticians are proposing almost
anything as having some finite probability of occurring, on the other hand they discard
all the principles of physics. Many theoreticians and science fiction writers who claim to
be physicists cannot provide mathematical consistency to their theories, not to mention
experimental support of any kind. The so-called theory of singularity contradicts all
present known laws of nature and the laws of physical reality.

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
