Update

Hello everyone!

Sorry for not posting in a while, I have been battling an illness for the past five weeks and am getting back up on my feet surely but slowly. I am also finishing out my spring semester at Stetson so I will be busy with that for the next couple weeks.

Once that is over, I will be revamping and working some things out for the summer. I am excited to show you all what is to come!

Have a great one and stay tuned!

The crew aboard the International Space Station have grown two batches of mixed greens (mizuna, red romaine lettuce and tokyo bekana cabbage), and are now running two Veggie facilities simultaneously.

Organisms grow differently in space, from single-celled bacteria to plants and humans. But future long-duration space missions will require crew members to grow their own food, so understanding how plants respond to microgravity is an important step toward that goal. The Veg-03 experiment uses the Veggie plant growth facility to cultivate a type of cabbage, lettuce and mizuna which are harvested on-orbit with samples returned to Earth for testing.

Good evening –

Watch LIVE the Falcon Heavy payload of the Tesla Roadster and Starman. #DontPanic

Congratulations to the SpaceX Team on a successful launch and landing of the two booster – word back is that the main core stage failed to land on the drone ship “Of Course I Still Love You.” Still a successful launch and (partial) landing.
