Veggie will expand fresh food production on space station
Date:4/14/2014

health, size, amount of water used, and the microorganisms that grew on them.

"I am thrilled to be a member of the Veggie and Veg-01 team and proud of all the work we have done to prepare for flight," Massa said. "Our team is very excited to see the hardware in use on the space station."

As NASA moves toward long-duration exploration missions, Massa hopes that Veggie will be a resource for crew food growth and consumption. It also could be used by astronauts for recreational gardening activities during long-duration space missions. The system may have implications for improving growth and biomass production on Earth, thus benefiting the average citizen.

For the future, Massa said she is looking forward to seeing all sorts of "neat payloads" in the Veggie unit and expanding its capability as NASA learns more about the food safety of crops grown in microgravity.
