MIT searches for solar power in spinach

See Popeye was right all along! Why in the heck have we been using conventional technology to harness the power of the sun when we should have been using spinach all along. OK, that is sort of weird. Regardless though, MIT may truly be onto something with their advanced solar research and the old fashion can a of spinach.

The research was reported in NanoLetters, published by the American Chemical Society, and detailed yesterday in a campus newspaper called MIT Tech Talk. Scientists from the University of Tennessee and the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory also contributed. The project was funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the National Science Foundation.
