The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is calling on makers across America to submit their designs for growing plants in space. You’ll have to design, prototype, and test your design – then the engineers and scientists at NASA will select the winning proposal to be considered for implementation in the International Space Station. You can help NASA’s mission for long-distance space exploration with this critical component for sustaining life beyond Earth – growing edible plants!
