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)
When you get a new camera… all you wanna do is shoot. I also got a new lens today. Got excited and shot some things around my skate rat home. We call it, “The Bucket”. My roommates work with me at the Active HQ office in Rancho Cucamonga, (workaholics style).
I know I’m way off on my white balance, as I shot in jpeg (forgot to change custom wb from earlier today). I don’t care at the moment. I have a new camera and I’m stoked. These photos are half assed. As they should be.
