Photosynthesis provides energy for the vast majority of life on Earth. But chlorophyll, the green pigment that plants use to harvest sunlight, is relatively inefficient. To enable humans to capture more of the sun’s energy, scientists have taught bacteria to cover themselves in tiny, highly efficient solar panels to produce useful compounds.
