We'll talk about the latest in nanotechnology — tiny tubes and tiny wires that could have a big impact. We'll find out why scientists are excited about a vibrating tube of carbon, and how nanowires could be used to detect and identify viruses.

Guests:

Paul McEuen, professor of physics, Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics, Cornell University

Charles Lieber, Mark Hyman, Jr. Professor of Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University
