Nanotech Map of the Americas

OK, there are some really cool maps out there, but I don’t know how many could beat this: a nanoscale ‘map’ of the Americas, done by Paul Rothemund from the California Institute of Technology. He has invented a process he calls ‘DNA origami’ which uses strands of DNA to create 2-dimensional patterns, which he expalins in an article about his research on the Nature website. You definitely have to check this out.
