Vroom-vroom! Go Nano-car!

Great article about Rice scientists attach motor to singlemolecule car. It's powered by light. The molecular frameworks for the motor were developed by a Dutch scientist, Ben L. Feringa, at the University of Groningen, in the north of our country.

'The first nanocar research paper, published the journal Nano Letters last October, was the most-accessed article from all American Chemical Society journals in 2005. That paper was co-authored by Kevin Kelly, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering."

So when do we get to take it for a ride?
