Georgia Tech today broke ground on the new Marcus Nanotechnology Buildng.

As is usually the case for Georgia Tech operating within the University System of Georgia, Georgia Tech solicited and collected private funds to build this facility to ensure Georgia a "front row seat" and future residents will benefit directly from a new field of study. The biggest donor was Home Depot co-founder, Bernie Marcus, who made a $15 million commitment to the building earlier this year. He made the committment largely due to the possibilities that nanotechnology has in medical research.

Ain't redneck tech cool?
