  • Artificial photosynthesis, eh? I guess I’d want to see how it’s going to be more cost effective with no more environmental impact than, say, you know, growing plants.
  • Funny. I submitted a project to the SpaceLab student outreach program back in 1973 when I was still in high school. The idea was to determine the feasibility of using hydroponic green algae as an energy and food source in space. My project was not selected to fly on the satellite.
