Scientists are Turning E.Coli Bacteria into Microscopic Fuel Factories
Joyce Park stashed this in Modern problems
On the one hand, super cool research to make common bacteria poop out gasoline. On the other hand... doesn't do a thing for global warming. Electric cars are 100% commercially viable right now, is there a pressing need for a technology that after years of research can only produce a few MILLILITERS of gasoline?
Perhaps other things can be learned in the experiments making bacteria create gasoline?
Electric cars with solar panels and better storage of that energy would be a bigger breakthrough, I agree.
