Broadcasting legend James Burke returns to the airwaves to discuss the biggest change to humanity in 10,000 years. In 50 years or so he predicts nanotechnology will give us capabilities we’ve only imagined of in science fiction. In labs around the world the foundations are being laid for the ‘nano-fabricator’ a device that will allow us to assemble just about anything, atom by atom; including itself. It could mean the end of scarcity itself.
