Recent Advancements at Food Technology

Next generation space food: 

Moon gardening anyone? Now #NASA is jumping on the local food bandwagon and has plans to grow basil, turnips and cress on the moon. To protect the #plants from cosmic radiation and the lack of atmosphere, NASA researchers will be growing them in high-tech terrariums, which contain #seeds, #nutrient-rich paper and the proper amounts of water and air to help the seeds grow. The canister terrariums have features that monitor #temperature and light and cameras, which will help researches track the plants’ development. If NASA has its way, astronauts will soon be able to forget about #freeze-dried space food and start enjoying locally-sourced greens 238,900 miles from #earth.
