Think Small to Think Big

We live in an era of exploration. Since the mid-twentieth century, humans have sent satellites, probes, and the occasional astronaut into space to gain information about the universe in which we live. As technology becomes smaller, lighter, and cheaper, we are able to fit more computational power into the same space probe. But current tech has its limits. If we want to learn about the vastness of space, we're going to have to build very, very small computers. Enter nanotechnology. Learn how we'll use cutting-edge tech to achieve the next step in space exploration in this month's non-fiction essay from Joseph E. Meany.
