"Dartmouth engineering students will head to NASA’s Langley Research Center to pitch a Mars greenhouse concept that has the potential to grow enough crops to sustain a small human colony," writes Granite Geek.

"As one of five finalists for NASA’s 2019 Breakthrough, Innovative, and Game-changing (BIG) Idea Challenge, the Dartmouth team will have the opportunity to propose a solution to a real-time challenge for NASA as it explores a human mission to Mars."
