Student Design for Space Colony Greenhouse Wins NASA Praise
May 16, 2019 | Engineering News-Record
"A radiation-shielded, inflatable greenhouse with a hydroponic growing system designed by undergraduate students at Dartmouth’s Thayer School of Engineering could sustain four astronauts on a 600-day mission to Mars as soon as 2030," writes Engineering News-Record.
"The students’ Deployable, Enclosed Martian Environment for Technology, Eating and Recreation (DEMETER) concept—the acronym is also the name of the Greek goddess of the harvest—won first place in the 2019 NASA Breakthrough, Innovative and Game Changing (BIG) Idea Challenge, the agency announced on April 24."
