Mars explorer recruitment poster. A NASA recruitment poster showing an astronaut farmer growing food in a spacecraft approaching Mars. A number of crewed missions to Mars are currently being planned to explore the planet's potential for human habitation. A self-contained bioregenerative system could be used to grow food during the trip to Mars. Plants would provide food and oxygen, remove carbon dioxide exhaled by crews, and could even purify water. NASA originally commissioned a series of these posters for an exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in 2009.
