A digital logic gate inserted into bacteria turns a living organism into a microprocessor. Underwater submersible vehicles study the ocean floor and allow humans to explore mid-ocean ridges and places where the crust of the earth was created. These new vehicles provide the means to obtain better data on earthquakes, as well as current and future potential cataclysmic events.
In addition, the submersible vehicles may be used to repair oil platform
infrastructure at the bottom of ocean.
The Big Idea: How Breakthroughs of the Past Shape The Future is a wonderful book which anticipates a robust scientific future for humankind with many labor-saving devices in the biological, chemical and engineering sciences. The presentation is easy to read and understand. Many full color pictures are contained throughout the work.
