Growing drugs in space.
If the rainforest runs out of undiscovered medicines, just grow new drugs in space: Wired
reports that "a swaggering Texas investor" wants to turn the International Space Station
into a kind of orbiting drug lab: "If people knew what I already know," he says, "the International Space Station would be considered one of the most valuable resources our world possesses." Think of it as New Jack City
in zero-G – full of weird, crystallized proteins (and billion dollar cures).
