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)
Gorgeous Puffin in Bloom editions illustrated by Anna Bond from Rifle Paper Company! Beautiful artwork on those endpapers and cover, plus special bonus materials at the end of each book. Including, of course, a recipe for raspberry cordial.
I don’t know if this is right but this is how I pictured the Wall (the wall to Taem, not to Claysoot) and Taem. I read that Taem is the first domed city in the book so I made a dome that took me hours to complete. By the way, I love this book! It has The Maze Runner feel to it. I think this book would make a really good movie someday.
