Caption: Kennedy Space Center plant growth chamber. Plant physiologist checking radishes (Raphanus sativus) being grown using hydroponic techniques in a plant growth chamber at the Space Life Sciences Lab, Kennedy Space Center, USA. Scientists are researching plant growth under different conditions and exploring various aspects of a bioregenerative life support system. Such research and technology will be used to develop methods for growing fresh vegetables in space, to add more variety and nutrition to the heavily processed thermostabilised diets astronauts receive during space missions. Such technology would be especially important for the multi-year journeys necessary to take people to Mars.
