- Molecular Engineering -Molecular
engineering is any means of manufacturing molecules. It may be used to
create, on an extremely small scale, most typically one at a time, new
molecules which may not exist in nature, or be stable beyond a very
narrow range of conditions.
- Genetic Engineering -Genetic
engineering, genetic modification (GM), and gene splicing (once in
widespread use but now deprecated) are terms for the process of
manipulating genes in an organism, usually outside of the organism's
normal reproductive process.
- Weapons of Mass Destruction -Weapons
of mass destruction (WMD) are weapons designed to kill large numbers of
people, typically targeting civilians and military personnel alike.
They are also known as weapons of indiscriminate destruction, weapons
of mass disruption and weapons of mass effects.
- Technological Singularity -In
futurology, a technological singularity is a predicted point in the
development of a civilization at which technological progress
accelerates beyond the ability of present-day humans to fully
comprehend or predict.
