This is way cool, ATS. A Graduate Student at Royal College has made an artificial leaf to aid in Deep Space ventures where there is a need for
extensive oxygen supply. With this advancement, a MAJOR hurdle has been overcome for Deep Space exploratiion; that hurdle being how to carry enough
oxygen for Astronaughts to survive on long trips trips into Deep Space or for off World ventures.
Royal College of Art graduate Julian Melchiorri has created the first man-made, biologically functional leaf that takes in carbon dioxide, water, and
light and releases oxygen. The leaf consists of chloroplasts -- the part of a plant cell where photosynthesis happens -- suspended in body made of
This is great news for the Space enthusiasts out there! With 3D printing for food, housing, artificial limbs, & housing, and artificial leafs for
breathing we're almost set to explore Space with confidence. Now all that's needed is a secure propulsion system that's really fast and we're off!
What says ATS?
