LED Lights to Grow Salad for Astronauts

LED GROW lights are set to be used to grow tomatoes and fresh salad leaves to feed astronauts on board the International Space Station, Nasa has revealed. The team are adjusting the lighting conditions to optimize plant growth in various conditions and then replicate those settings in the Advanced Plant Habitat on the ISS, meeting the sophisticated needs of space food production. Via radiation with light of different wavelengths, the growth cycles of plants can be controlled and accelerated, allowing the plants to be harvested either more often or as required. http://luxreview.com/article/2018/06/led-lights-to-grow-salad-for-astronauts
