Artificial Leaves Could Change Medicine

Artificial Leaves Medicine

This leaf is a miniature drug factory. It's a prototype device that captures sunlight to fuel chemical reactions. Allowing scientists to manufacture medications on the fly.

Each 'Leaf' has a system of artificial veins that are filled with different liquids. And when they are exposed to the stored sun energy, the chemicals inside react, producing compounds needed to develop drugs.

Mars Colony

Since sunlight is all that's needed for the leaves to work their magic. They can be used on other planets like Mars. meaning essential medicines could be readily available for early colonizers. All with a design as simple as nature itself.
