By the way, during the preparation of our experiment at KSC in Cape Canaveral (Florida, USA), we got to know Joseph Tiberi  a student  of the school called Lakewood High School in Colorado. Joseph and his team, in association with NASA, developed a project designed to grow a plant in zero gravity. It is called the Hydrofuge project. It was sent up to the ISS on SpaceX 6 with NanoRacks for 120 days of zero gravity testing. The main design features that they are testing include the 80 degree angle in the chamber, designed to help control water, and the centrifuge, designed to spin the plant and remove the water clinging to the roots.

Here are some of his photos which are interesting! Thanks Joseph!

Here it is just after one week in microgravity!



Here it is after a longer time in microgravity! The situation has changed a lot!


We will give you more info next time!
