THE SPACE POTATO
Deep Space Plant-Based Ship
By Ross Ziegelmeir - United Kingdom
Plants are used in everything around us. We even drink plants as tea. Without fruits and vegetables, we would become very sick. Our clothing is also made of plants. The air we breathe is produced by plants. Plants clean our water and regulate rainfall. Without plants, we would not exist.
We must think about plants as we plan for deep space exploration. How are we going to take them with us so that we can survive?
Watch this cartoon about growing plants on spaceships.
Design a ship that could be used to explore deep space.
