O-plants

I didn't see any section for straight-up technology or science... so I'll try my topic here and see where it goes :)


O-plants

The O-plants are plants (like gas plants not flower-type plants) that have the technology of turning CO2 into O2. Basically what plants do. The reason they exist is because sometime in the (recent) past, a radiation was discovered (or created, I haven't decided yet) that destroyed the chlorophyll that plants need to photosynthesize. All plant life on the planet was slowly being destroyed (not to mention oxygen levels were rapidly decreasing).
Thankfully, the inhabitants were able to create technology that could take the place of plants. They were called O-plants, or Oxygen Plants. During the process of creating this technology, an antidote was discovered. But, since they already had the technology and it would take thousands of years for plant-life to recover, the O-plants stayed.

Thus, the people on this planet, at least this coming generation, have very little knowledge of plants. Except for those who are trained in keeping plants alive and discovering how to enhance their growth-rate. While some plants were saved, many species were completely destroyed, and will never be seen again, though scientists are still searching for ways to duplicate these plants.

Moved to Lesser life forms. :)


This sounds great, Mia. I love the idea. So, what exactly to they look like?

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king

J. R. R. Tolkien

Re: O-plants

I'm not sure. I haven't gotten that far yet... I'm thinking they may be large white buildings, but that's all I've got :P




Thanks for moving. I wasn't sure since this was more of a technology than plant...

Re: O-plants

This is a very interesting concept, Mia, and very sci-fi. I even like how it sounds very scientific.

I agree. Very interesting. It would be a neat story premise. :D

Re: O-plants

Now how would you set up your story, in order to use these?

Re: O-plants

I'm not really sure. The story I made them for is mainly held in space, so there will actually be little reference to this technology. Except in the form that they use the O-plant technology to create air for their spaceships. This technology will also assist them in populating oxygen-bare planets.

So I guess, in a way, O-plants are the reason the people have the technology.

Re: O-plants

They should have huge chimney/smoke stacks only that's where the oxygen comes from. :D That would be a switch from smoke stacks as they're seen today.
