Re: Iss Plant growth experiments - planning the future in 0g

There is a big challenge here, how to be keeping space food equipment small, light and easy to maintain during a two-year Mars trip and without costs going out of control

I think this is more of a reflection on our lack of an adequate launching mechanism. We need some gigantic railguns. Surely the instantaneous electrical cost of these things would be less than the gradual cost of electrolyzing water for liquid fuel engines.

Putting heavier things in space would open a lot of doors.

Re: Iss Plant growth experiments - planning the future in 0g

SpaceNut, I think we need to update this like posting the links about the past and current research about crops planted in ISS.


I'm Jayson from the Philippines. I am a Master's degree student at the University of the Philippines Los Baños, Laguna. My major degree is in Botany (specializing in Plant Physiology), and minor in Agronomy. My research interests are Phytoremediation, Plant-Microbe Interaction, Plant Nutrition, and Plant Stress Physiology.

This topic got trimmed by the great crash. Hopefully some of it will still be in the human folder Iss station topic

Is it possible to recover and update this forum?

For jfenciso re #29

The original posts were from 2007 or so ...

You could make a contribution here (if you have time) by updating the topic with current information.

I'm ** pretty ** sure I read a brief report on an attempt to grow lettuce or a similar leafy vegetable on the ISS.

I can't share this time, but I am willing to compile a paper about plant research in ISS and their related studies.

Is The Mars Society have their own established research pipeline?

Re: Iss Plant growth experiments - planning the future in 0g

For jfenciso re #32

This forum is one of many activities of the Mars Society.

The answer to your question about Mars Society research is yes.

Your best way to learn what is available is to watch the videos of the recent 2020 Mars Conference.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P … z9NgdtxDAF

The Mars University video is early in the series.

You should be able to find information about the Mars Simulation activities that have been ongoing for a number of years.

In addition, there are joint ventures with other academic institutions.

The Mars University initiative would seem (to me at least) the best path forward for a college graduate interested in service to the Mars goal.

Re: Iss Plant growth experiments - planning the future in 0g

I will contact the web master to check there progress on the files to get information back for the many topics. Also when I am back on with a computer this topic needs repair as well from the software for the old to new form conversions.
