072: Nanotechnology with Mark Hersam

Mark Hersam is a professor of Chemistry and Materials Science Engineering at Northwestern University. He joins Nate in The Show About Science studio to talk about nanotechnology, carbon nanotubes and how a pencil and some scotch tape led to the Nobel Prize winning discovery of graphene.
