Caption

Plant growth chamber on Mars. Computer illustration of a produced growth chamber being used to grow vegetables on the surface of Mars. NASA's VEG-01 experiment (VEGGIE) is developing methods and chambers 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.
