    Germany noe mayer 3 at the South Pole Station (Neumayer Station III) scientist, in the outdoor temperature is below - 20 ° C, in high-tech greenhouse (EDEN - ISS) successful kind of out of the earth, sun and pesticide of vegetables, including 3.6 kg salad of lettuce, 18 cucumbers and 70 radishes.(LED plant growth light)


    It is understood that scientists use reusable water cycles and nutrition systems based on water plants, while using LED lighting instead of sunlight and carefully monitoring indoor carbon dioxide.(LED plant growth light)

    In addition, scientists are expected to produce 4.5 kilograms of fruit and vegetables a week by may, according to the German aviation center.(LED plant growth light)

    It's not the first time that NASA has successfully grown vegetables on the international space station in 2015.(LED plant growth light)

But it is worth noting that the project focused on the future to Mars or the moon, such as planting more rich variety of vegetables, including carrots, salad with green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and even the herbs.(LED plant growth light)

    But there are limits to such a system, and scientists say some fruits and vegetables have to wait a long time, such as strawberries, and they are still waiting for a successful harvest.(LED plant growth light)
