What is "NANO"?
Nano is a prefix that means a billionth.
Or it's 1x10-9  = .000000001


What is a billion?
Put it this way, it would take 31 years to count to a billion if you started counting per second.

So basically anything "nano" is really really really really tiny. You cannot even see it with your eye!

There are a lot of "nano"products out today! Some clothes, electronics, health & beauty items, sports equipment, sunscreen, etc..... have nanoparticles/materials in them!
