This is super interesting. Any idea if it would be possible to make RF signal-altering plant? eg. shower it with specific wavelength, the plant converts it to something else - could be used to remotely track plant growth from orbit, or something else crazy like that ;-) Anyways, good luck!

Can we make radiation-resistant plants that can survive in space?

This is a very cool project that I will be watching closely. I'm an inventor of a Wide-Spectrum display technology called Kameraflage ( that exploits the difference in human and machine vision (NIR and NUV). I've spent a LONG time dealing with NIR - even to the point where NIST consulted me about exposure levels for a guidebook. Long story. In my lab experiments I found that some people could see further into approaching NIR than others, so this led me to believe that there was a kernel of ability for some humans to see at the edge. I thought about an experiment like yours, but increasing the amount of Rhodopsin - never got around to doing it though. Anyways, This is great. Let me know if I can offer any help. 10+ years of self-taught NIR optical engineering, and a willingness to put strange things in my remaining good eye ;-)

Can we biologically extend the range of human vision into the near infrared?
