    Those are fasinating. This reminds me when I talked to a group of Scientist on a site about the fastest speed. They kept talking about traveling through space with weight mass. I asked them why not bond a Nanorobot to a patical of light and reduce the the problem of mass. The scientist came back with a real smart reply. He said yes. Build a solar glider made of so many hundred of thousands of photons hit it with a laser and if the Nanorobot does’nt burn up it will travel with the light. His design was much better than this design but never the less it was just a thought. Another Science thinker came back and said right, And if on another planet the Nanobot gets eaten by a bird or rodent what have you accomplished. Well, my thought was much too Hollywood for these guys, but I thought it was cool. Have the robots reproduce themselves and populate the Universe. Thanks
