Happy National Nanotechnology Day! The National Nanotechnology Initiative chose October 9 (10/9) for this festival of all things nano in honor of the nanoscale, which is 10-9. In other words, a nanometer equals 0.000000001 meter!
This year at Sustainable Nano we are mostly celebrating over on Twitter, but we hope you’ll also enjoy this collection of just a few nano-related resources from around the web.
