We review the fluctuation electromagnetic theory of attraction, friction and heating of neutral nonmagnetic nanoparticles moving with constant velocity in close vicinity to the solid surface. The theory is based on an exact solution of the relativistic problem of the fluctuation electromagnetic interaction in configuration sphere -plane in the dipole approximation.
