Partner news: SCIENCE VIDEO SHOWCASE by AthenaWeb

"Life is an unfoldment, and the further we travel the more truth we can comprehend. To understand the things that are at our door is the best preparation for understanding those that lie beyond". - Hypatia

This month on AthenaWeb you will discover a selection of videos that should make you travelling in different realities… Space observations, three science “fictions” made by Taiwanese students, a 3D health game and four conversations with eminent scientists in the hidden world of the molecular biology. From the Infinitely small to the infinitely large, from unrevealed reality to virtual fiction: Welcome on AthenaWeb, Your Science Video Channel!

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
