Drilling cancer cells away

MINUTE machines that can kill cancer cells in one minute by drilling into them have been created by scientists.

The nanomachines are motorised molecules activated with ultra violet light, making them spin up to 3million times a second. The “motor” is a paddle-like chain of atoms that can be prompted to move in one direction. The machines can then pierce and destroy cancer cells or deliver drugs to the heart of them.
