The race for the most efficient way to power our planet is happening right now. There are many options ranging from wind to nuclear to hydro power. Sometimes science has to turn to nature for inspiration, after all trees have been using solar energy to survive for millions upon millions of years. Could humans use photosynthesis to power our lives?

The above drawing is a futuristic view of the world as envisioned by Reynolds Metals Co. in the mid-1960s for what the future would hold for the Aluminaut (shown as the dark vessel at top left).

- Producing electricity through subsurface dams set up over strong ocean currents
- The ability to move large amounts of people safely underwater as opposed to dangerous travel above the surface during hostile weather or attacks
