Finally NANO BOMBS !

Every technology has some good side and also a bad side.Here some peoples are interested in it’s destructive power.

Sandia National Laboratories, the Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are trying to figure out how to manipulate the flow of energy within and between molecules, a field known as nanoenergentics. This would enable the building more lethal weapons such as "cave-buster bombs" that have several times the detonation force of conventional bombs such as the "daisy cutter" or MOAB (mother of all bombs).The power of the weapons is increased by adding materials known as superthermites that combine nanometals such as nanoaluminum with metal oxides such as iron oxide. However this technology can also been used not just for warfare but under water explosives or for fuel in rockets.

Here peoples are interested in constructive side- nanoguru is always with them.

Nano Bombs used to treat Acne.

A nano-bomb, containing a coconut oil compound, that directly attacks the bacteria that cause acne. The new smart delivery system developed by a researcher at UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering could be a boon to the more than 60 million people who suffer with this skin condition.

The nano-bombs containing the coconut oil compound, called lauric acid, may offer a solution, according to Dissaya Pornpattananangkul, who developed the smart delivery system. The treatment involves gold nanoparticles that are bound to the surface of lauric-acid filled nano-bombs. The gold serves several purposes: it prevents the nano-bombs from fusing together, and it helps the bombs zero in on the bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes) that cause acne.

When the nano-bombs reach their target, the gold nanoparticles fall away, which allows the lauric acid to fuse with the bacterial membranes and kill the bacteria. “Precisely controlled nano-scale delivery of drugs that are applied topically to the skin could significantly improve the treatment of skin bacterial infections,” notes UC San Diego NanoEngineering professor Liangfang Zhang. Not only is this treatment more targeted, it also minimizes or avoids side effects.

Nano Bombs used to Heal from Cancer

There is a new way to cure cancer disease.Researchers at North Carolina State University have successfully modified a common plant virus to deliver drugs only to specific cells inside the human body, without affecting surrounding tissue. These tiny “smart bombs” – each one thousands of times smaller than the width of a human hair – could lead to more effective chemotherapy treatments with greatly reduced, or even eliminated, side effects.
