It seems like there are near endless ways to produce power these days, even simply pulling it from the air around you. Now, Plant-e, a Dutch company, has found a way to harness the power of plants. They believe that plants can power cell phones, street lights, and can even act as Wi-Fi hotspots. Their flagship project called Starry Sky was launched last November near Amsterdam. The project powered more than 300 LED streetlights.
How does it work? Plant-e explains on their website:

For many years now it has been widely known that smoking, certain dietary factors, obesity, and many other factors are major contributors to cancer incidence. However, a growing body of research has shown that specific changes in the intestinal flora, or dysbiosis, can be found in the stools or on the colonic walls of patients with diseases such as colon cancer.
This has led to hypotheses suggesting that cancers such as colon cancer are in fact bacteria-related diseases, with some species being [...]

The image is from 'Hidden Valley' in Gale Crater on Mars. Very fine-grained sediments, which slowly fell down through the water, were deposited right at the bottom of the crater lake. The sediment plates at the bottom are level, so everything indicates that the entire Gale Crater may have been a large lake. (credit NASA/JPL, MSSS)Researchers have long known that there is water in the form of ice on Mars. Now, new research from NASA's Mars rover Curiosity shows that it is possible that there is l [...]
