Publisher's Summary

In the cover story, "The Promise of Plasmonics", a new technology squeezes electromagnetic waves into miniscule structures. It may yield super-fast computer chips, ultra-sensitive molecular detectors and perhaps even invisibility cloaks. Next, "Gassing up with Hydrogen". Researchers are exploring ways for fuel-cell vehicles to hold the hydrogen they need for long-distance travel. We'll also hear about a cure for rabies, and the survival of a Wisconsin teenager who contracted rabies may point the way to a treatment for the horrifying disease. Then, seeking the connections between alcoholism and our genes. Identifying genetic influences can lead to more targeted treatments and help individuals make better-informed choices. Finally, are autistics affected by what they eat?
