What if humans could harness the wisdom, science and magic of plants to form new planets? That is the quest of the Nebular Mitosis Laboratory in Department of Planetary Futures. Realizing the urgent need for a Planet B, the experiments implemented in ACSE (Allium Cepa Stella Erratica or onion planet) analogize biological and astronomical processes such as mitosis and the nebular hypothesis to develop methods and processes for onion propagation to yield a new planet, so that humans may continue life as they know it.
