News of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Chemistry being awarded to Jean-Pierre Sauvage, J. Fraser Stoddart, and Ben Feringa for their work on molecular machines (C&EN, Oct. 10, page 5) inspired readers to check out a previously released C&EN article exploring Feringa’s efforts to build nanocars such as the one pictured above, which is only a few nanometers in length (Nov. 14, 2011, page 7). And after checking out the coverage, readers couldn’t help but delight in the work of Feringa and his fellow awardees.
