Biofuel Matchmaker: Finding the Perfect Algae for Renewable Energy

A dozen glass cylinders containing a potential payload of bright green algae are exposed to hundreds of multi-colored lights, which provide all of sunlight's natural hues. The tiny LEDs brighten and dim to mimic the outdoors' constantly changing conditions. To further simulate a virtual cloud passing overhead, chillers kick in and nudge the algae a little cooler. A new, approximately $6-million collaborative project is using this unique climat...
