For Best Nanotechnology Video, the Winner Is...

I am afraid thereâ''s not that much suspense. Itâ''s just as I predicted two months ago. The winner of the American Chemical Societyâ''s competition for describing nanotech went to "The Nano Song" (, a warm-hearted, muppet-style video.

Since I already posted the winning video last February, I thought I would post the runner-up: â''Nanotechnology Brings us Delicious New Solar Cellsâ''. Those crazy, wacky kids at Notre Dame. Enjoy. By the way, this is the directorâ''s cut.
