Gardening in Outer Space?

Posted by Tammy Sons on

Tuesday, April 5

Space itself may not be able to support life, but space stations can. The French have assigned an astronaut to take care of a tiny garden on the International Space Station.

The experiment hopes to figure out ways to grow crops so that astronauts may feed themselves during long voyages. A relative of the common mustard plant is being grown at both earth gravity and zero gravity to try to make this plan a reality some day. Though not up in space itself, Tennessee glade grass has small charming flowers and is related to mustard as well. Find it in our mail order catalog.
