The first school experiment to test if plant cuttings build roots in zero gravity has been sent to the International Space Station (ISS). The trial, designed by Maria Koch, Raphael Schilling and David Geray - three students from an agricultural high school in Ravensburg, Germany - left Kennedy Space Center in Florida on board the SpaceX rocket on February 19, 2017 at 9.39 am am local time. To date, experiments conducted in zero gravity have only concentrated on the growth behavior of seeds. BASF’s crop protection experts have supported the young scientists with research know-how, scientific consultancy, materials and equipment. See more at spacefarming.basf.com
