Nanotechnology is making inroads in our everyday lives. The coming nanorevolution is comparable to the development of trains, cars and computers. In Where Gold Glints Blue, researchers describe how nanotechnology may change the foundations of life in the future, and the opportunities and risks that the new technology affords. Nanotechnology concerns us all, and will transform our lives. This is the English version of Där guld glimmar blått - forskare om den lilla nanorevolutionen (2007).
