DEWITT, N.Y. - If you're looking to blow something up for a major Hollywood blockbuster these days, you might need a dose of science.

Some of the materials used to contain those explosions, and ensure they only blow up the things they're supposed to, are based on nanotechnology.

That's the science of manipulating individual atoms and molecules, said Alain Kaloyeros, CEO of the SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering.

Those materials and other innovations will take center stage at a new nanotech-focused hub planned for Collamer Crossings Business Park in DeWitt. Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the project Tuesday.
