“Oceans”: it’s what keeps us working toward nanotech

For many of us, it’s our desire to preserve and restore the environment that brought us into the work of pursuing molecular nanotechnology in the first place.  How do we keep going over the decades that this goal is taking to accomplish?

One way is to restore our enthusiasm for the goal through films such as “Oceans“, the documentary now showing in mainstream movie theaters.

Breathtaking is the best way to describe it.  Repeatedly I saw images I never imagined before and often wondered “how could they have obtained this footage?”  Lucasfilm helped with the film, narrated by Pierce Brosnan.  It’s worth sitting through the credits to see some coverage of how the movie was made.

This is one you want to see on the big screen.  Thanks to Scott Banister for the tip!  —Chris Peterson

    I actually just watched this TED talk today about the destruction of our oceans:

    And in a discussion about it afterward the question arose: “So is there anything we can do to FIX it?”

    My first, immediate, and only reply — 2nd gen Nanotech.
