ENEA: the hi-tech garden to cultivate on the Moon and the North and South Pole

Jul 11, 2020 178

A hi-tech vegetable garden to grow micro-green on the Moon and in extreme environments such as the polar ones, set up inside a special ‘igloo greenhouse’ designed to withstand very low temperatures. But also space missions simulated thanks to advanced immersive virtual reality techniques.

This is the challenge of V-GELM (Virtual Greenhouse Experimental Lunar Module), the experimental project that will start from tomorrow 10th July until 19th July in the Casaccia Research Centre with the aim of developing a lunar cultivation module combining innovative hydroponic cultivation techniques with virtual experiments to support astronauts’ lives in future long-term missions.
