Micro-Microchip

IBM recently announced the production of a working logic circuit constructed entirely of carbon nanotubes, about 100,000 times thinner than a human hair. This breakthrough could lead to miniscule computer chips with unimaginable speeds. Hey, our Space program can use all of the computing power it can get. A colony on Mars would most definetely require the kind of computing power contained in such a "micro-micro-microchip".
