Thanks for covering this, Ann. It's great to see NASA backing the use of biofuels and experimenting with alternative fuel for its gas-guzzling vehicles! Hopefully their research will set a precedent and pave the way for more widespread use of alternative fuels. Any idea why these chose fuels based on these particular plants? It seems like there are quite a number of plant-based biofuels emerging.
