How will humans grow food on Mars?

In this episode of #AskAbby, we are so excited to have special guests join Astronaut Abby to discuss how plants will be cultivated on Mars! Morgan Irons is a Duke University graduate, Chief Science Officer at Deep Space Ecology, LLC and Vice Chair of The Mars Generation’s Student Space Ambassador Advisory Board. She joins us to help answer questions from teacher Amanda Green’s 7th grade students from the École Coloniale Estates School in Alberta Canada. The students have been working on experiments to grow plants on Mars through The Martian Garden Project.
