NASA’s idea for making food from thin air just became a reality — it could feed billions

Here's why you might eat greenhouse gases in the future. By ROBBY BERMAN 19 July, 2019. Re-posted from Big Think The company's protein powder, "Solein," is similar in form and taste to wheat flour.Based on a concept developed by NASA, the product has wide potential as a carbon-neutral source of protein.The man-made "meat" industry just got even more interesting. It's not like you can make food out of thin air. Well…it turns out you can. A company from Finland, Solar Foods, is planning to bring to market a new protein powder, Solein, made out of CO₂, water and electricity. It's a high-protein, flour-like ingredient that contains 50 percent protein content, 5–10 percent fat, and 20–25 percent carbs.

The Dwan Light Sanctuary, Las Vegas, NM

The Dwan Light Sanctuary, Las Vegas, NM

Re-posted from Atlas Obscura. Located on the campus of the United World College, the Dwan Light Sanctuary uses prisms instead of windows to transform the light that enters the building into a lattice of rainbows. The peaceful room was created by Virginia Dwan as a multi-purpose space for meditation, reflection, or even religious practice. Eschewing a singular purpose that might make the sanctuary less than welcoming for some people, the space allows visitors to turn the stark white space into their own escape.

With no other decoration to distract the eye guests can simply meditate on the rainbows that are projected on the walls and floors as natural light passes into the room. Many universities offer quiet rooms and study halls,...

Out of this World – Santa Fe Institute launches an Interplanetary Project with Galactic Ambitions

Santa Fe Institute President David Krakauer introduces the notion of cosmic judges rendering decrees on humanity as part of a thought experiment: “I’m so interested in the question, ‘What can we be proud of?’” Krakauer says during an interview in his office at the institute where, on this June afternoon, smoke from fires burning in the national forest semi-obscures the vast city and mountain views from Hyde Park Road. Stacks of books crowd most available surfaces—George Johnson’s Fire in the Mind and The Book of Trees by Manuel Lima catch the eye; a model rocket sits atop Krakauer’s desk. Santa Fe Institute President David Krakauer wants to know what Earthlings...
