Nanotechnology, the science of manipulating incredibly tiny things – like atoms and molecules – is truly awe-inspiring. Scientists have made films by positioning individual atoms and physicists have won a Nobel Prize for their work on sheets of carbon so thin they’re basically two-dimensional.


This amazing concept was first outlined today in 1959, when physics genius Richard Feynman explained to a rapt audience how the Encyclopedia Britannica really could be written on the head of a pin. If you like the idea of a future where molecule-sized robots race through our bloodstreams curing everything from hangovers to cancer, this is one idea worth celebrating, and the Gin Atomic strikes a suitably atom-scaled note.
