    Glowing Plants: Street Lights of the Future?

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/this-cou...6783.html?vp=1

    “The plant that we’re working on to make glow is called Arabidopsis,” explained Antony Evans, the team’s project manager. “It’s got the shortest genomes in the plant world. And it has a reasonably slow life span, so you can do experiments quickly.”

    I can't find an image of what it would look like, but it seems like it'd be cheaper and prettier than street lights.

    I suspect making plants glow will back fire hilariously.

    I don't like this. They could be nuked or something.
