NASA Astronaut Grows First Radish Crop in International Space Station Under Microgravity


  Created By ANI

NASA astronaut Kate Rubins harvested the first ever radish crop grown on the International Space Station on November 30.

The radish harvest, which the space agency described as a “historic harvest” was part of NASA’s plant experiment, Plant Habitat-02 (PH-02) that seeks to understand how plants grow in microgravity conditions, the space agency said in a press release.

The radishes were grown in the Advanced Plant Habitat (APH), a growth chamber for plant research. The chamber, along with its LED lights and controlled release of release fertilizer, delivers water, nutrients and oxygen to the plant roots.

Radishes were chosen since they are fairly well understood by scientists and achieve maturity in just 27 days. The space agency also released a time-lapse video which tracked the growth of the vegetables.
