worldwide acclaim but he confesses he was terrified by the squirming Sec on graders who attended the world premiere of his new space fantasy for children children frighten said Nikolais a 79yearold Bachelor you never can know what their reaction might be unless youre around them a lot in not around children very much so it was doubly Nikolais have worried moments after the curtain Rose tuesday on the Crystal and the his stage voyage through the Galaxy of a Childs imagination Nikolais clearly had won the hearts of 500 local school children who packed the Kennedy centers Terrace theater the kids squealed As the House dimmed and the rumble of Thunder Shook their seats they oozed and ached As the rising curtain revealed a 20foot balloon gently on the stage like a strange new planet and a 12foot shard of Crystal bathed in Celes tial lights they giggled at the wondrous aliens that Cavor Ted across the stage a Mermaid who teasingly tied her kelp tresses to an anglers Hook a pair of fat we footed Birds that splashed in musical mud puddles Herky Jerky androids ablaze in Ultra Vio let hues who disappeared in the twinkling of an Eye Nikolais did it All choreography synthesizer musical

atoms on the surface but gently enough not to lift it off the surface Eigler said the amount of pull was adjusted by changing the Needle tips height typically the tip hovered about 10 billionths of an Inch above a xenon atom atoms could be moved about 16 billionths of an Inch per second once they were positioned the tip was withdrawn apart from the ism design researchers also arranged seven xenon atoms into a Chain the work was done at about minus 452 degrees fahrenheit almost As cold As anything can get that kept the xenon atoms from wandering Eigler said in addition it was done in an extremely High vacuum to keep unwanted molecules from contaminating the surface Eigler said the surface can be kept free of contamination for at least a month Eigler said Lindsay said that degree of control was impressive Eigler said he did not know of any commercial use for placing xenon atoms on Nickel but perhaps some More useful kinds of atoms will lend themselves to the technique he said such atom atom placement should help scientists learn More about How atoms and molecules behave on surfaces which might help in developing semiconductors the building blocks of Many elec tronic devices he said it May also provide a Way to store perhaps 2 million times More elec tronic information in a Given spare than is now possible Eigler said electronic information is now re corded in sort of a Morse code consisting of is and of and that might be translated into he pres ence or absence of an atom at a particular location he said states leading Way in developing economic development

Market share it said for the first time in our history it began to look As though we would not be Able to Promise our children a better life than our the study said some of the new strategies and the extent of their use include forty four states Are stimulating applied research through research centers and research Grants fort five states help businesses commercialize new technologies or apply
