Why do I even bother to explain something that no one can comprehend.
Wow...
Can you try and be more arrogant please?


Algae is the fastest growing plant on the earth. One day huge algae farms will make all the earths oxygen and fuel and maybe hydrogen for space flights using cold fusion or Focus fusion that uses decaborene fuel.

Umm.....the day we have algae farms will be the day all of the oceanic life dies....bc there wont be any sunlight to reach the lower levels of the ocean. Aside from that, umm...where were you going to put these "farms" if not in the ocean? Wouldnt they do more harm than good? lol. Oh, and Void is right, algea isnt a plant, its a protist. And the scientific community doesnt call it "algea" anymore...they're now just "protists" happy.gif

It's the worst idea. Algae does produce 2/3 of the worlds oxygen already. A bit of careful farming could prove useful against climate change.
I don't know anything about marine biology though, just thinking out loud.

Kelp can be raised in the oceans. But did you know that supper blue green algae is being farmed now as a food supplement. So the algae could be grown in desert areas by keeping a lid on evaporation. Also Algae can be nutritious and provide a good source of fuel. Some forms of Algae contain 50% oil. The rest could be made into feed stock or fermented to make alcohol or some kind of fertilizer. This just popped in my mind. Also any hydrocarbon fuel can be cracked or processed to make hydrogen.

@ Chiyo

Well for any long term space flight or station the crew needs oxygen. Algae is posibly one of the best sources for oxygen on a shuttle or moon base because it can be made to fit into any container or maybe even hydrogels to have a self sustaining hydroponic oxygen source one type of Algae could fuel a generator while cleaning the air by means or a storage vat on the moon for mining of a fusion fuel. The other thing, Hydrogels could aborb nutrients and water and the algea could grow into them forming a green gel like substance that could be used in clear containers where air is circulated through to remove carbondioxide. Currently metal canasters on the shuttle remove the CO2 and that is expensive. So saving money where posible would good for anyone going to space.
