Lunar Plant Growth Experiment (LPX)Testing

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Lunar Plant Growth Experiment (LPX)Testing
No plant-based biological spaceflight experiment has ever hydrated seeds in lunar gravity. Risk of bubbles or of uneven dispersion were deemed too great. This flight opportunity helps verify the microfluidics delivery system will disperse water to all seeds under lunar gravity. This experiment will be a first step towards a watering system for the Moon.
