Gold-Plated Nanobombs

by wjw on January 3, 2007

Laser-activated, gold-plated nanobombs are being used to fight cancer.

I mean, how cool is that?

Something about the title of this post had me CONVINCED that it was a political rant. 😉

That said, you have seen the nanofluids and other weirdness over at New Scientist, yes?

For some reason, I keep seeing that title as “Gold-Plated Nanoboobs.”

And I’m just not sure how cool that would be…

Quite cool, indeed!

Off-topic: Hi. A few days ago, I was cleaning my house and found my old copy of “Angel Station”. It was probably over 15 years ago that I read it before. I’m re-reading it. God, it’s good! So I googled your named and found this blog. Thanks for the enjoyment.

PS: Not that you can sue Joss Whedon, but the overall situation the Shooters are in at the beginning now seem kind of similar to the Firefly crew.

Unfortunately I didn’t invent down-and-out merchant space crews. At least I don’t remember doing it. So unless Joss Whedon adds a four-armed guy named after a character in a surrealist play, I guess the both of us will remain lawsuit-free.

Thanks for the kind remarks about Angel Station. That was a book that took more sweat than I would have liked.
