Imagine: you’re looking down at the Earth from space. Oceans and continents blur as the planet transforms into one bright blue ball. And it doesn’t stop with our own solar system. There are just as many galaxies in the universe as there are stars in our own.

Now reverse the direction of this imaginative voyage, and turn inward rather than outward. That same number of stars in our galaxy is.

Wet nanotechnology (also known as wet nanotech) involves working up to large masses from small ones. Wet nanotechnology requires water in which the process occurs.

The process also involves chemists and biologists trying to reach larger scales by putting together individual molecules. While Eric Drexler put forth the idea of nano-assemblers working dry, wet nanotech appears to be the likely. Nanotechnology provides extensive potential in this area and is already being widely used to great success.
