Unfortunately, I will arrive in Germany too late to experience the “SciencExpress”. The train, a travelling nanotech communication centre, departed Berlin in April and is making a round trip of Germany to arrive back in Berlin in this month. While at work the other day, I was lamenting the fact that I would miss out on seeing the nano train. A German colleague, who has just arrived in Perth on a professional exchange, overheard me. It turns out that my colleague works for ArchiMeDes- the very company that designed and implemented the SciencExpress! I was floored by the sheer coincidence- the nano communication world is veritably tiny. Her team has developed numerous nano-focused exhibitions, and is based in Berlin. So a visit to ArchiMeDes is certainly on my itinerary for March 2010!
