Bionic particles combining proteins and semiconductors, with the goal of deriving fuel from sunlight using photosynthesis.
According to the University of Michigan, the particles 'blend the strengths of inorganic materials, which can readily convert light energy to electron energy, with biological molecules whose chemical functions have been highly developed through evolution.'
To be fair, University of Pittsburgh researchers got equal credit in the article, which also links to umich.edu.
The Great Lakes create such amazing weather at times. This is a video posted on MLive showing a fog bank moving in on Lake Michigan. The video was shot by a fisherman.
I know this is off topic but she is a Michigan fan and body paint.

Further, it is the most read article on mlive today. Of particular note, the object of the attention became somewhat of a local celebrity after the original article went viral. Local band Black Jake and The Carnies wrote a song about the mystery pooper, a fake mystery pooper account popped up on Twitter and a billboard requesting residents "Do your civic doody” and "Help us catch the 'poopetrator'” appeared on Interstate 94.
Unfortunately, the police did not identify this new local celebrity, who apparently resides in a local halfway house. Thankfully, he was apprehended before warm weather would allow kids to play in the area.
