The article below shows the latest video of this pulsar(they've done this before; this is the latest/greatest)

-------------------------------crazy science/technology for the day
And just a few days later from me posting about the liquid crystal nanomanufacturing, the biotech guys equal if not exceed the possible pace of the immenent nanotechnology revolution.
nanoscale molecular assembly factory
As the article says, they've already had millions of these processing molecules at the same time; this is what should take your breath away. The thought that comes to my mind is that whatever limitations this assembly line may have, they can augment from numerous other dna-nanotechnologies already pointed out in this blog alone. This can be vastly generalised . . . almost certainly before this year is out.
Here's a link to the official paper,
nanoscale nanofactory produces milligrams of peptides
A paperclip is like a gram; so a thousanth of that is still seeable.
