Biologists at Colorado State University are developing bomb-detecting plants that can instantly change colors when explosive chemicals are in the air. While this may seem like ridiculous science fiction, the project has received tons of funding; lead researcher June Medford says that the plants could be in airports within four years.

As someone who is fearful of flying, the news that bomb-detecting plants are being developed is music to my ears. Check out the video to see Medford explaining in detail the science behind these bomb-detecting plants. How's that for flower power? Stats for Bomb-Detecting Plants Trending: Older & Mild
