Here’s an article that showed me that something I thought was true, wasn’t so:
plants do grow in zero gravity.
Plants growing in space is interesting, So how about some YouTube videos about them.
Cultivating Plant Growth in Space
Is about five minutes long. It was put out by NASA in 2015.
The second and last:
plants in space
Was put out by the Australian Academy of Science in 2016, and last for more than an hour and a half. It includes three speakers. The first speaks about growing plants in controlled environments, including space and commercial applications. The second speaker tells us about different lighting requirements for controlled environment plant growth, and the advantages of using LED style lighting. The last speaker tells us about when actual plants were grown in actual space, on the ISS–International Space Station.
