Presentation Description

“This artificial leaf is created with a matrix of protein which has been extracted from silk & chloroplasts – organelle which allows plants to perform the process of photosynthesis. When provided water and light, this leaf acts like a real leaf & produces oxygen.” wrote Harry Coumnas.

Slide2:

In order to survive in the outer space, humans need a steady supply of oxygen . Unfortunately, lack of oxygen has always been of one of the most persistent challenges of manned space exploration .

Slide3:

Although many artificial O2 generators have been created in the past, none is as effective as they need to be.

Slide4:

Recently, Harry Coumnas , a post-graduate student at a leading science college of Germany created a synthetic leaf , which according to him can photosynthesize .

Slide5:

Though the leaf is yet to be examined by experts, Harry has already become a sensation on social media .

Slide6:

While interacting with people through his social media account, Harry Coumnas shared how he developed the leaf.

Slide7:

“This artificial leaf is created with a matrix of protein which has been extracted from silk & chloroplasts – organelle which allows plants to perform the process of photosynthesis . When provided water and light, this leaf acts like a real leaf & produces oxygen.” wrote Harry Coumnas .

Slide8:

Harry also shed light on many other important details of his synthetic leaf , like its light weight, low energy consumption, etc. “This development will definitely help make long distance space journeys easier.” he continued.
