When it comes to sustaining life, one of the most significant conditions is light. The process of photosynthesis is crucial for most life on Earth, as it involves capturing energy from sunlight to produce oxygen and chemical energy. In fact, in advanced greenhouses, neon colored artificial light is even used to enhance the growth rate of plants. In this 3D simulation video, it is demonstrated how weeds, grass, and flowers only grow in areas where the ceiling light illuminates the concrete room. This concept could have practical applications, such as serving as an underground shelter in a post-apocalyptic scenario or as a shelter for immigrants on Mars.”
