Cyanobacteria were some of the earliest photosynthetic bacteria on Earth, and were responsible for the Great Oxygenation Event that converted Earth's atmosphere into an oxygen-rich environment. Because of this, cyanobacteria can play an important role in the oxygen cycle of a new world, especially if engineered to be more efficient oxygen agents.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

They produce 1 oxygen ppm per min, but this is one of the keys to stabilize oxygen on worlds.


Trivia[edit | edit source]

Fun Fact: The Great Oxygenation Event nearly killed all life (99%) on earth. That is because of photosynthesis, because cyanobacteria are there.
