A dinner fit for a Martian
May 16, 2019 | The Boston Globe
"A team of Dartmouth undergraduates have designed an award-winning greenhouse tailored to function on the rocky planet," reports The Boston Globe. "Their work earned them the top award for this year's NASA BIG Idea Challenge.
"The Bundt cake-shaped structure, named DEMETER (after the Greek goddess of the harvest), is equipped to support eight food crops: kale, soy, sweet potato, potato, broccoli, strawberry, wheat, and chufa (a sedge that produces nut-like tubers). There is room for one extra crop of the astronaut's choosing."
