A graduate student has created the first man-made biological leaf. It absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant. He did this by suspending chloroplasts in a mixture made out of silk protein. He believed it can be used for many things but the most striking one is the thought that it could be used for long distance space travel. Plants do not grow in space, but this synthetic material can be used to produce oxygen in a hostile environment. (Video)
WHY AREN’T YOU FREAKING OUT OVER THIS!!!! ITS A SYNTHETIC PLANT THAT CAN HELP YOU BREATHE IN SPACE!!!!!!!
TREEBORGS PEOPLE TREEBORGS!

Reblog if you have read fan fiction better than some published books
Help me prove a point
I have never reblogged anything faster.
This is really important. Besides the fact that small animals can become stuck in gum larger ones often choke on it or have their mouths obstructed by it.
Humans may be able to pass gum through our systems but most small birds, reptiles, and mammals can’t. Gum looks and smells a lot like food to other animals and it can mean their demise if they try to swallow it.
It only takes a few seconds to wrap your gum up and put it somewhere responsible, you could just save a life.
I never would have thought gum of all things could fuck up a hummingbird. Guess it isn’t just gross- for the wrong critter it’s dangerous.
please no halloween posts just yet. there’s still 2 months left
did someone say halloween
“The dragon? That’s what you’re worried about? Not the people you almost killed?” “He was just protecting me! He’s not dangerous.”
sleepy boys are the best because they have cute messed up hair and squishy tired cheeks and little droopy eyes and are at their most vulnerable making it easier to kill them
