#Scientists #pioneer a new way to turn #sunlight into #fuel

Scientists at the St John's College, University of Cambridge, used semi-artificial photosynthesis to explore new ways to produce and store solar energy, a finding that can now be used to revolutionise the systems used for renewable energy production. Their method also managed to absorb more solar light than natural photosynthesis.

Katarzyna Sokól, first author and PhD student at St John’s College, said: "Hydrogenase is an enzyme present in algae that is capable of reducing protons into hydrogen. During evolution, this process has been deactivated because it wasn't necessary for survival but we successfully managed to bypass the inactivity to achieve the reaction we wanted -- splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen." The team not only improved on the amount of energy produced and stored, they managed to reactivate a process in the algae that has been dormant for millennia.

No ropes attached: behind two heart-racing free climbing documentaries
Amazing, TFS this Dinyar

We know how the movie ends, because we read about it in the papers last year: Honnold summits, climbing from bottom to top in one perfect push, 3,000 feet in just under four hours, becoming the first person ever to climb the mountain that way, maybe the only person who will ever climb it that way. But as we watch the transcendent act unfold on-screen, that knowledge of how the movie ends feels about as useful as the unicorn suit that Honnold encounters en route (true story).
