Oh, sorry - that should be "bible ON a pinhead". Silly me.
Following up on my post from a week or so about folks in the US being "morally against" nanoscience, maybe this story will help to raise the numbers a little. According to Ananova,
Israeli scientists say they've created the world's smallest Hebrew Bible - on a gold-coated silicon chip smaller than a pinhead.
Scientists at Technion, Israel's Institute of Technology, were able to pack the 308,428 words on to a 0.5mm square of silicon by etching its surface with particle beams.
He said he now wanted to take pictures of the nano-Bible and blow it up to a seven-by-seven metre poster, which will make it "possible to read the entire bible with the naked eye".
The tiny Bible was developed as part of an educational drive to increase interest in nanoscience among teenagers.
So, there you go. Increasing nanoscience interest amongst teenagers.
Sheesh. There must be a better use of resources.
