Space Green House!

One of the many things I found interesting on my Museum of Science & Industry fun day was this design for a greenhouse in space.  It compacts down into a small cylinder, robots expand it into an oblong tube.  It is designed to be a self-contained growing center and the idea is to deploy these in advance of space travel, so people can have a salad when they arrive.  The exhibit said the technology was tested and used at the research center in Antarctica.

Calm down, stoners.  It’s just lettuce.
