Could Bioremediation Turn Pacific Garbage Patch Into Habitable Island?

A research group out of University College London is proposing an unusually ambitious upcycling scheme—turning all that plastic junk swirling about the Pacific into a habitable island. The students aim to design and release a really tiny, genetically engineered, synthetic plastic-eating organism that could aggregate all those bottle caps, plastic bags, and broken toys into floating real estate or what they’ve called the “Plastic Republic.

(Note: Personally I think calling it a “Patch” makes it smaller in people’s minds, and therefore nothing worrisome. This is wrong, because it needs as much attention as possible.)

Swiss Floating Stairs

Would you like to test your phobia? This stunning and scary stairway is real. Hanging high in the sky from the side of a building without so much as handrail, this staircase is dizzying just from the photos. These stairs are attached to the exterior concrete wall of this towering Swiss skyscraper over ten stories off the ground. They are not actually used by anyone. They are, instead, the work of spectacular staircase designers Sabina Lang and Daniel Baumann.
