Note, it is a prequel to Queen urban Jazz
This is the way it begins...
...with the Silence, born of mysterious, space-originated phenomena that render Earth's dominant applied sciences lifeless -- inspiring paranoia and alien invasion fears inside of mystery govt corporations, which, in flip, motivate repressive activities opposed to a perceived enemy populace.
...and with murder, as New Orleans mob boss and voudoun queen, Marie Laveau, dies in a hail of gunfire -- and is remade throughout the wonders of nanotechnology.
In a brand new international that necessity has transfigured -- an exciting, seething stew of microscopic equipment and genetic engineering; of totalinarianism, eco-terrorism and violence -- Marie Laveau's starvation for vengance is giving approach to anything greater.
For future has named her savior of the outcasts, the opressed, the crazies, the hunted and the Silence's mutant teenagers, who all flock to her dream of a destiny as candy as an Ellington riff...and a secure haven referred to as Crescent urban.

Dramatic advances in genetics, cloning, robotics, and nanotechnology have given upward thrust to either hopes and fears approximately how expertise may rework humanity. because the chance of a posthuman destiny turns into more and more most likely, debates approximately tips to interpret or form this destiny abound. In Japan, anime and manga artists have for many years been imagining the contours of posthumanity, developing extraordinary and infrequently aggravating artworks that envision quite a few human/nonhuman hybrids: biological/mechanical, human/animal, and human/monster.
Purposes of nanotechnology proceed to gasoline major ideas in components starting from electronics, microcomputing, and biotechnology to drugs, patron provides, aerospace, and effort creation. As development in nanoscale technology and engineering ends up in the continuing improvement of complex fabrics and new units, superior equipment of modeling and simulation are required to accomplish a higher quantitative figuring out of subject on the nanoscale.
As nanotechnology enters lifestyle, engineered nanoparticles (ENP) will locate their manner into nature, together with floor and groundwater. the following, distinct specialists of water chemistry current committed tools for the research of nanoparticles within the aquatic surroundings, their distribution and destiny.
Radio layout in Nanometer applied sciences is the 1st quantity that appears on the built-in radio layout challenge as a "piece of a giant puzzle", particularly the full chipset or unmarried chip that builds a complete instant process. this is often the one approach to effectively layout radios to fulfill the stringent calls for of today’s more and more complicated instant platforms.
