Preparing to Grow Food On Mars
Isolation, limited resources and harsh environment in Antarctica  is ideal for the kind of conditions faced by  astronauts growing crops in space in environments like Mars. EDEN ISS is a greenhouse regulated remotely from mission control at the German Aerospace Centre in Breman. The cultivation process at this greenhouse  is aeroponic meaning  a soilless system where the crops absorb nutrients from a water mist applied at the roots. The vegetables are grown in vertical racks, giving a total growing area in the greenhouse of 12.5 square metres, with the roots exposed in plant growth trays.Photo credit Esther Horvath
