      As the population grows, some engineers are considering to build deep down into the earth instead of going up. This idea brings up a whole new topic about reusing abandoned tunnels or mines to grow some plants. How do you like the idea? Do you think it is possible?

      There are many abandoned buildings that were converted into farms. These types of farmers are using the latest technology to grow plants with the use of ultraviolet rays instead of direct sunlight. They can even control the intensity of the light so they can control the quality of the produce. Therefore, it is a yes, underground farming is very plausible in our day and age.

      We have been struggling with space and ground for a while, so this idea sounds like the breakthrough we need all along. It is understandable that we need more research before launching the project all across the world, especially about the risks. After all, going closer to the earth’s core isn’t without risks.
