nanoGUNE. The Charm of the Small

nanoGUNE the charm of the smallNanoGUNE: the Charm of the Small is a book published in 2021 where the journalist and writer Elixabete Garmendia Lasa gathers the testimonies of eleven people, major stakeholders and participants in the development of nanoGUNE over the previous 12 years. Their stories, each from their own experience, introduces to the seductive, invisible sphere of the nanoworld, so crucial in the development of science in the 21st century. How does the ‘great challenge of the small’ work on a day-to-day basis? This story gives us the answer to that question in a humble way, without forgetting that science is an infinite universe of still unanswered questions.
