EM2 in the Pub Part 9: Crops in Space

Crop scientist Dr Tory Clarke from the ANU and University of Tasmania takes us through the challenges of growing plants in space. Some things are easier than you’d think. Others, not so much.

EM2 is the Earth to Moon to Mars projects, to develop and test technology for humankind’s colonisation of other world. NASA has identified a moon base as the springboard to a mars base, so Boswell Technologies is spearheading a grass roots effort to test as much technology as possible before it goes into space.

This pub night in Canberra brought together experts from a range of sciences to discuss the issues colonisers on the Moon might face.
