Discussing plant growth in space
5/16/2014 by Carina Helle Berg / Ole Einar Marken

​In this high quality video from ESA, Javier Medina talks about the opportunities offered by the ISS to grow plants (and therefore food, oxygen and water vapor) in absence of gravity in order to study the potential plants needed for future exploration.

Medina has been researching since 1981 as Investigador Científico at Centro de Investigaciones Biológicas in Madrid, Spain.
