This lamp absorbs 150 times more CO2 than a tree
It’s still in the “so crazy it just might work” stage, but these microalgae-powered lamps, invented by French biochemist Pierre Calleja, could absorb a ton of carbon from the air every year. That’s as much as 150 to 200 trees. [x]
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. This is ingenious.
The design is a light bulb surrounded by a glass casing. The glass is filled with (water based) media and microalgae. The top is permeable to gasses so that gas exchange can occur. All of the wiring is linked to the grid underground.
Since the light source is inside, it gets scattered and “dimmed” by the water and algae. This makes it less glaringly bright and scatters the light wider, which is good for a street light. It is not longer white light as well, which helps make it easier on the eyes while still providing light.
At the same time, it provides the light for photosynthesis in the algae, so they are continuously exchanging CO2 for O2, not just in the day. It also provides a source of heat, which helps keep the algae from going dormant during cold weather (as in the snowy picture above).
And notice how I did not specify permeability - that’s because NOx’s (NO and NO2) are also permeable and can be used as nitrogen sources to microalgae. In fact, algae are relatively low maintenance. As autotrophs, they don’t require super complex media, not does it really need to be changed/added to. (I’m actually fairly certain that there would still be algae in these tanks a year later; it may need to be cleaned or something, but there would be some living algae.)
i would be more inclined to believe this if it wasnt for the absolutely terrible photoshop job
aw shit get it wednesday
HA! I almost forgot to reblog this today
Every Wednesday from now on.
Its wednesday yo
this never comes on my dash at the right time anymore :( i think i went two weeks without it and now i’m reblogging it on a thursday
GOD DAMN YES FINALLY BLOGGED IT ON A WEDNESDAY
Do colors have fandoms
Can I be like ughh purple is so awesome
I totally ship it with turquoise
I ship Purquoise. I even drew some smut for it (NSFW):
Why is there porn on my dash
i wonder out of 204,000 posts how many of them are homestuck
I never put this up but the place I went to be interviewed for had this dress… Is it me or is this becoming a popular design?
I like how they don’t even mention what fandom this is aimed towards
we just know
Someone draw her in this, please
STAHP THIS IS GETTING RIDICULOUS
SO I DID A THING.
I really think it’s actually a popular design or idea- there was a project runway episode recently that used that exact design, and i’m pretty much 100% sure it wasn’t inspired by homestuck.
but the color is spot on and the general design is just too perfect
quick name things that science can’t explain?
these things have to be things we KNOW happens (there’s no debate around that) but can’t explain
so ghosts which the existence of is debated wouldn’t be a good answer but something like the placebo effect would
HEY! i’m still taking in suggestions, reblog this with your ideas!
higher concepts of quantum physics such as super small particles disappearing and reappearing in seemingly random fashion.
what exactly happens to matter in black holes. if conservation of mass is true then why do black holes dissipate the way they do.
This is an experiment and I want to see how many people think this.
I can’t put into words how horrified I am that this doesn’t have more notes
The fucking “If Only There Was Someone Who Loved You” meme is more viral than this
The glaring grammatical error does not help.
im just posting this picture of a post as a photo dump just ignore it
the real post:
reblog if you’re allowed to keep your computer/tablet in your room
please can i try to get a lot of notes???
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD REBLOG! I DON’T WANT THIS POOR SOUL TO NOT BE ALLOWED THEIR COMPUTER IN THEIR ROOM!!!
