Did you know that you do not have to be a to create something? An example of a chemistry that was made by a non-scientist is Liquid Paper. In 1952, a woman named Bette Nesmith Graham needed to work to support herself and her son. Life was very difficult for a single mother. She soon found a job as a typist, but she was not very good at it. She made a lot of errors typing leading her to formulate a white tempura paint to hide them. Using her kitchen as a , she developed a liquid that other people wanted to buy and use. She named this liquid “Mistake Out”. While continuing to work as a secretary, she educated herself in business methods, promotion, and research until she was that the product she had developed was really . Sometimes around 1952 she offered “Mistake Out” to IBM, which turned it down. From 1952 until 1979 she continued to make and sell “Mistake Out”, now renamed “Liquid Paper”, out of her home. In 1979, the Gillette Corporation bought “Liquid Paper” for $47.5 million dollars plus royalties.

Read the passage.

Scientists at MIT have managed to change ordinary spinach plants into natural sensors which can detect chemicals used in bombs. Using a cheap and small computer system, the spinach can even trigger a warning email. The secret to giving spinach these special powers is nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, or nanotech, is a scientific area that deals with making or changing things that are incredibly tiny. We’re used to measuring things using sizes like a meter (a little more than a yard). But nanotech is measured in nanometers – one billionth of a meter (0.000000001 meter). That’s pretty small.

The MIT researchers are interested in using nanotech to give plants new abilities. They say plants are already great at sensing their environment, since they take in water from the ground, and respond to chemicals in it. Plants also supply their own energy, which the scientists can use to power their tiny experiments. For this experiment, the scientists placed two different kinds of nanotech materials into spinach plants. Some were tiny sensors. Others were tiny tubes called carbon nanotubes, which were used to make the plants give off a special light.

To get the tiny materials into the plants, the scientists put a liquid containing the nano-materials on the bottom of the plant’s leaves. That’s where the plants normally take in carbon dioxide gas. The plants took in the tiny particles, which became part of the spinach leaves. Once the tiny sensors and nanotubes were in the spinach leaves, the plant did the rest of the work. The carbon nanotubes in the leaves, using some of the plant’s energy, give off a special kind of light. The scientists are able to detect this light by shining a laser at the plant’s leaves and measuring the light coming off the leaves.

As part of its natural process, the spinach plant pulls water through its roots and into its leaves. If the water contains certain chemicals that are used in bombs, the sensors in the leaves make the nanotubes give off a slightly different kind of light. By watching the plant constantly using a camera attached to a cheap computer, the scientists set up a system that can send a warning email if chemicals from explosives are detected in the water. The researchers say it takes about 10 minutes for the plants to react to the chemicals. “It is almost like having the plant talk to us about the environment they are in,” said Min Hao Wong, one of the researchers.

The computer the scientists used is about the size of a playing card. They say that in the future, their system could even use a cell phone with its camera changed slightly. Detecting chemicals used in bombs is just one of the many uses the researchers are exploring. They’ve used plants to detect and report on several other dangerous chemicals as well. The scientists believe that in the future, such systems could give farmers detailed information about the health of the land and water on their farms.

Now use NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS AND/OR A NUMBER to answer each question.

1. What is the size of one nanometer?

2. Which type of nano-materials can produce a special light?

3. The nanotech materials get into the spinach through of their leaves.

4. What can be sent if the sensors detect chemicals from bombs?

5. How long does a spinach plant need to detect chemicals from bombs?

6. What kind of information about the soil and water can the farmers receive by using this invention?
