We began the SEEDS OF MARS experiment with Erin. This project represents an educational experiment designed for school children. The objective is to engage two classes in our mission, fostering awareness of space exploration and cultivating their scientific processes. Their task is to experiment with the scientific premise of the movie "The Martian," specifically the cultivation of potatoes in Martian soil. The experiment will involve a test group planted in analog Mars soil and a control group (in potting soil), both cultivated under precisely identical conditions (water, luminosity…). Today, we planted cress in two different pots following the school children protocol. We setup an environmental sensor (temperature, humidity, luminosity) to monitor, we also setup a phone to take a time-lapse during the entire mission.

Harvest: (include which crop and mass in grams) : 333g of tomatoes

Support/supplies needed: None
