     Moderator: R.     Mac Bride Allen
     K. Baty, H. Davidson, R. Mac Bride Allen, S. Miller, M. Mist, F.

Hey, here's a tired SF gimmick: pouring the contents of your brain
into a computer, and maybe back again.  Backup copies?  Robot
duplicates?   How could this really be done?  How close is science to
doing it?  Or is it  impossible nonsense?

Nanotechnology has caused a stir in SF circles.  Our ability to 
manipulate matter, perhaps even individual atoms, may allow us to
build tiny machines halfway between robots and germs that reproduce
themselves and do our bidding.  Tantalizing possibilities: build
anything, make everyone rich,  attack disease, raise the dead.

Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have proposed  a

materials. The Livermore approach produces a slender thread of
facilities from Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to Mars. Each step provides a
toehold for colonies bo build from and at the same time make economic
exploration of the solar system a real posibility.
