As humans seek ways to travel deeper into space, we must discover ways to expand life- support systems. One possible solution is a plant-based system.

Tomato plants are an ideal choice as they provide wholesome nourishment and water through transpiration from their leaves. Through photosynthesis, tomato plants also convert light energy and carbon dioxide exhaled by astronauts into oxygen that is needed for survival.

During this experiment, plant two sets of tomato seeds (one exposed to space or space-like conditions and the other untreated) and watch them grow. Sponsored by Let’s Talk Science.
