_ Thank you for your time. Tell me Thatcher Griffin, a little bit about the technology you deal with in the future.
I deal mainly with Nanites.
And what are Nanites?
Microscopic robots whose components are … nanometer (10−9 meters). The devices ranges from 0.1-10 micrometers and constructed to…molecular components. I believe you have them in your time.
I think we have a problem with the connection, you’re coming in and out. And I don’t think we have Nanites. It sounds interesting. I was told you are the second youngest on the team.
Yes. I am.
As the Chief Engineer of the Peregrine Falcons, do you deal with space ships?
Sure, but they are bio-form, not mechanical in nature.
What does bio-form mean?
They are an organic propulsion system, plant life. An alien ship…your time with one…back engineered them. Nicholas is really the one you need to talk to about it.
Sorry, the connection still seems to be bad. Nicholas Crumb? Your team’s Intelligence Officer?
Nick’s specialty is communicating with non-human life forms. Is that better? Sometimes I forget.
To talk out loud.
Ok…what about weaponry?
Engineers mainly deal with shielding. Weapons would be Cornac or Kealin.
What kind of shielding?
One use would be using the Nanites as a suit. All Fathis teams wear Nano Suits when on assignment. The suit creates an all-encompassing body-forming shield around the wearer, protecting them from the elements of an inhospitable world, or weapons fire.
Well, tell me something that has changed technologically from my time, to yours.
I’m not sure if you had developed molecular memory storage yet…
I don’t believe so, what is it?
A technology that use molecular atoms as the data storage element. In a molecular memory device, each individual molecule contains a bit of data, each atom leading to massive data capacity. For example you could take a sugar cube and on each individual atom, store information. It would then be possible that your continent’s internet could be stored onto one sugar cube.
Wow! This all sounds so amazing. It seems everything is technologically smaller but more powerful there.
Of course, why would someone want bigger?
Again, thank you for your time.
