The researchers said that thanks to their finding even brighter plants could be developed in the future and that new features, such as changing brightness or color in response to people and surroundings could also be mixed in. But for that to happen there’s more work to be done.
I wish those assholes would stop fucking around with that sort of thing. If you don't know exactly what the negative long term ramifications might be don't do it. "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn't stop to think if they should."
Plants in a controlled environment aka "a lab". Not like they wanted to seed that thing anywhere in the first place. It's simply legitimate preliminary exploratory research for possible useful and controlled applications, not terraforming.
Talk about a textbook example of a slippery slope logical fallacy
Sometimes I think you hate on science because of ideological reasons, but never attribute to malice what you can attribute to something else so *shrugs*.
