    It is not as though photosynthesis is a tangential capability or a minor event in the history of life. As the leading science writer Charles Q. Choi put it, “One of the most pivotal moments in Earth’s history was the evolution of the photosynthetic life that suffused air with the oxygen on which virtually all complex life on the planet now depends.” Photosynthesis is incredibly complex.
