Editor’s Introduction

  1. In this famous talk to the American Physical Society on December 29, 1959, at Caltech, Feynman, the “father of nanotechnology,” expounds, decades ahead of his time, on the future of miniaturization: how to put the entire Encyclopaedia Brittanica on the head of a pin, the drastic reduction in size of both biological and inanimate objects, and the problems of lubricating machines smaller than the period at the end of this sentence.
  2. Feynman makes his famous wager, challenging young scientists to construct a working motor no more than 1/64 of an inch on all sides.
