Stem cell research is just one of the many reasons I voted against Bush.
I still think America is not lagging for nanotechnology. We are at the forefront of quantum computing, that much I know.

Oh yeah Quantum Computing is somthing I am looking foward to *drool*. Still too early to tell though who leading who in that area though.
"South Korean scientists found a simple way to produce high-purity single-walled carbon nanotubes en masse, the vital materials for nanotechnology, under ambient conditions.
Until now, scientists created the substances at high temperatures ranging from 700 to 2,000 degrees Celsius. But the yield rate was still below 70 percent and purity was between 70 to 95 percent, even after multi-step purification processes.
By contrast, Park's team used the chemical effects of ultrasound and a liquid solution to make nanotubes at atmospheric pressure and room temperature.
The newfound method worked handsomely as it enabled volume production of high-purity nanotubes without a purification process and its yield rate also improved to more than 90 percent. Mass Production of Carbon Nanotube Becomes Possible"

This site is not too bad either. www.nano.org.uk...
Under the reports, there is an article introduction that mentions alot of countries that are in the running for top dog of the nanoworld... I would never have expected Taiwan or Vietnam to be players in the nanogame.

Exploding shells are illegal for your info,they were banned under the geneva convention because they were designed to cause hurt. A normal shell can take a person out just as well without causing half as much hurt.
