Minivans in space through nanotechnology?

from the I-want-one-of-those dept.
A NASA web page, The Right Stuff for Super Spaceships, touts the benfits of nanotechnology, in combination with information technology and biotechnology, "for making dramatically improved spacecraft possible." The focus is on the advantages of carbon nanotubes as very high-strength, very low-weight structural materials, as building blocks for molecular wires and sensors, as fuel storage elements, and as components of self-healing materials.
