If scientists have discovered how to turn light into matter (via Sebastian Anthony at ExtremeTech), how soon before we have Star Trek: The Next Generation-style replicators delivering us meals from the power of sunshine? Most important: would this allow vegans to enjoy bacon without guilt?

Yep. As important as any scientific breakthrough can be, it always goes back to the bacon. I may not be a scientist, but I know what’s best for the planet’s happiness!
