Lightbulb Glowing Trees Could Replace Street Lights

Hello,

I wonder how will trees glow during fall or winter when most of the leaves are falling.

Quote:
American researchers have discovered a way of making plants give off dim light for almost four hours. Scientists injected tiny nanoparticles a chemical called luciferase into the leaves of a watercress plant to make it produce low-intensity light.

Trees could soon replace streetlights after scientists create plants that glow

Very cool! The leaves will light the road then be washed away by the rain and we'll have glowing sewers. But ive been watching science shows for years and not one thing ive seen brought to the general public. Whats the most scientific thing in our house? TV and computers, and maybe drones

They might try going back to the source, and superglue glowworms to the twigs of the trees.

Hello,

I know you were being sarcastic, but I like to point out that glow-worms only come out during summer. I'm sure they will die from the cold. Now that I think of it, there were hardly any in summer, must be the insecticides killing them off. Same with bees, haven't seen any in my yard this year - usually I would see them pollinating flowers. Don't recall any bees from last year either. How sad.

Well ok, I was being a bit sarky. When I heard the story on the radio the other day I thought it a bad idea.
Now if they could make the chemicals photosensitive so the plants only begin glowing when the sun goes down, then that might be a sight to see on our streets of the future.
