SmallTalk:  Vroom! Nanocars and Nanofactories (Podcast)
Running Time:
00:28:20
Dr. Jim Tour, a chemist at Rice University, builds the world’s smallest vehicles. He calls them “nanocars,” and he thinks these tiny vehicles might lead to nano-sized factories. We’ll also hear from University of Florida graduate student Diane Hickey, who will tell us some of the interesting reactions she’s run into when explaining nanotechnology.

SmallTalk:  Nanograffiti: Building from the Atoms Up (Podcast)
Running Time:
00:22:52
Join us as we speak with IBM Fellow Dr. Don Eigler, who first used a scanning tunneling microscope to demonstrate the ability to build structures at the atomic level by spelling “I-B-M” with individual atoms. Also, meet Tom Rockwell, Director of Public Exhibition at the Exploratorium, who describes, in an audio essay, how he imagines the land of the very small.

Science from the Poles:  Live From the South Pole: Ice Cube (Webcast)
Running Time:
00:35:47
Join us as we talk to South Pole scientists about Ice Cube, a major new telescope being built deep below the surface to detect ghostly neutrino particles. The neutrino telescope will use thousands of detectors spread over a square kilometer of ice below the South Pole to study cosmological mysteries such as black holes, gamma ray bursts, and the remnants of supernova explosions.
