THIS WEEK IN FOOD NEWS

space veggies

Scientists grew the first vegetables in Antarctica without soil or sunlight

A group of German scientists stationed in Antarctica have successfully grown vegetables in a specially designed sunless, soilless environment.

The researchers are working with the EDEN-ISS project, in association with the German Aerospace Center (DLR). The goal of the project is to find possible ways to cultivate food for human missions in space. While NASA has successfully grown greens on the International Space Station, the Antarctic project aims to produce a wider range of vegetables that might one day be grown on Mars or the Moon. The hostile environment and isolation of Antarctica provided offer one way for scientists to simulate conditions on Mars or the moon.

Cheers,
The WSCSA Core Committee
