Growing Plants in Space: Manipulating Medium Wettability to Create Different Saturation Conditions

Butz, Ines; Herring, Anna


Growing plants under microgravity conditions in a space ship is essential for future long-term missions to supply needs for food and oxygen. Although plant growth modules for microgravity have been developed and tested for more than 40 years, creating optimal saturation conditions for plant growth in the absence of gravity still remains a challenge. In this study, we present results from a series of spontaneous imbibition experiments designed to approximate microgravity conditions by using...[Show more]
