Dijkstra, Colin Milburn, Harro van Lente (Eds.): Shaping emerging technologies. Governance, innovation, discourse: IOP Press (Studies of new and emerging technologies / S.NET, 004), pp. 203–218.

"This chapter analyzes the popular Hollywood film Fantastic Voyage, images produced by atomic force microscopy, the early modern utopian imaginings of Francis Bacon, the neoliberal rationality of Bjørn Lomborg’s geoengineering advocacy, and a prominent geoengineering proposal to blanket the atmosphere with levitating nanoscale discs."
