Growing Food for Mars

Our students are  experimenting with growing enough food for a combination of astronauts, scientists, and engineers conducting research on Mars.  We are using biology, physics, space mathematics, robotics, chemistry and botany to help solve food growing problems on Mars.

Can robots help with growing food on Mars?

The Barboza Space Space Center has a plan for growing food on the way to Mars.
