Plants, Algae

Smoke and fire burnt the East Sky here because SpaceX successfully launched its 15th cargo-resurgent mission on Friday (June 29th).

A dragon spaceship sat on the last block of the company 4 Falcon 9, who was riding in the class. The inside deck was £ 5,900. (2,700 kg) is a product that includes food and specialty options for a particular restaurant for space.

Historically, astronauts, mostly packaged foods, have eaten a specially designed diet. But just like the rest of us, they prefer to change it and then. In a post-meal meal, manager of the satellite TV, Kircher Shriman, explained that some of the frozen behaviors, as well as ice cream, like Texas ice cream, are like Texas’s things like blueberries.

Fresh goods

Like the beloved sci-fi series “Firefly”, fresh food in space is a rare cure, because fruits and veggies should be shipped from the surface of the planet. Once in the classroom, there is a shelf life (like on Earth) for the purpose of destroying and it needs to be eaten very quickly. But it is starting to change apart from NASA plant-development chamber, which is called Veggie.

Since the mission is long, NASA wants to ensure that employees have access to fresh food and that the astronauts can grow themselves. Researchers from NASA say that it will provide nutrition and psychological benefits to the team members. This helps researchers to understand the best plant in Micron. In a news release, Veggie project manager Trent Smith in NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida said in a news release: “We’re using veggies to answer science questions about science, which is in space for astronauts Can grow.” “We want astronauts to develop fresh food to complement their diet.”

To date, in most of the crops cultivated in the special development chamber, “abusive” is a variation of the red roman called Lettus. But this is going to change. There are four new types of plants colliding inside the incoming dragon: “Dragon” salad, “Extra Dwarves” Pak Choi, “Red Russian” Black and “Wasabi” Mustard tried and will join a new crop of true red Roman. Overall, this arrival will add 18 plant pillows to the Veggie Room. Varieties of these plants were selected because, unlike the past rumen crops, they are rich in vitamin B1, C and K, as well as Potassium.

The human research program recognizes these nutrients as important, because they decrease over time in the food items that the astronaut usually eat. Astronaut food is usually stored on the space station for months before consuming it, so it is beneficial for supplements with fresh foods. It ensures that astronauts get all the essential nutrients they need, researchers said.

Smith said in the same news release, “The nutritional benefits of fresh, nutritious food and the psychological benefits of growing plants have become paramount because the agency is planning a future mission for deep space sites.” “And it is so exciting to take part in Fairchild’s students, these students stick to these long experiments throughout the semester, which shows that they have perseverance for being a scientist.” A batch of space algae also reached the classroom laboratory. Researchers at the University of Florida, Mark Settles and colleagues believe that this test will help explain how the algae microbiology responds.

Why algae? 

Researchers said that algae are incredibly efficient in using low-intensity light conditions to create energy through photosynthesis, which makes the plant right to grow in orbit.

Algae are also useful in the form of bio-based feedstock (meaning that the plant can be used in building materials such as plastic and paper). Researchers explained that educational tension (e.g. microbiology) produces therapeutic changes in the algae.

However, one major concern is: the increase of algae.

Settles explained to the media, “We are trying to make algae domestically for development systems which will be practical in space.”

As part of the investigation, the first non-NASA payload for the use of Veggie Chamber, the crew will try to develop many strains of algae within the chamber.

Settles said that the team hopes to grow algae inside the hole in plastic bag that will already be placed in the cells at the space station. Live algae samples return to the same dragon at the end. This team will study and analyze urgency to see what the best answer to the asteroid is.

Settles said, “We will basically examine the breathing plastic bags that are used to develop animal cells in the culture on earth and will grow algae in those bags.” “For more than 50 years, labs on shakers have been grown in algae glass flasks, in plastic bags, they become very slow in flasks.”

In this experiment, scientists will identify the genes associated with development more rapidly; Researchers believe that this will help algae engineers to make them mass-produced in space. On earth, corn is one of the most productive crops grown today, but due to the obstacles of light and space it will not grow well in space, researchers said. On the other hand algae can grow in small containers, while more waste helps consume carbon dioxide.

He said that many studies have not been done about how algae responds to micrographism, so Settles and his team hope to learn a lot from this research.

Micro greens

The dragon also examined another student; it detects how microgen-like rabbb and basil grow in space. Special plants – Depending on the Roman Lettuce instead of the Development Room, this batch of mini deer will grow in test tubes inside a space tango cube lab, which is like a small laboratory in a box. Every Cube lab includes everything needed to run the experiment and astronauts are designed to work autonomously without supervision.

According to Twyman Clements, CEO of Space Tango, each of these Cube labs comes out of the fish-eyed camera, which takes a photo every 30 minutes. These cameras allow researchers to collect photos and share with students. Clementes at the conclusion of the 21st operation said that this plant is comparing the results of the earthquake trial to the students.

In this setup, the plants are in a phytogel, which Clements resembles the jail-o. This substance contains all the nutrients which require the development of plants. Seeds are dehydrated before planting. Plants are kept in special cold boxes which keep the temperature up to 4 degrees Celsius (39 degrees Fahrenheit) until they reach the orbit. Once installed on the station, the plants will become warm and hopefully it will grow.
