Horticulture scientists Drs. Anna-Lisa Paul and Robert Ferl have been honored by NASA with an award in the Most Compelling Results category for their research on plant astrobiology.
Ferl and Paul are determining how plants react in the zero-gravity space environment. Their research is not only paves the way for plants to be grown in space, but it also provides insight into how plants function at a molecular level here on Earth.
NASA is honoring Paul and Ferl for three recent experiments they conducted with plants on the International Space Station. For an in-depth look at these experiments, click here: http://www.labmanager.com/news/2015/07/growing-plants-in-space?fw1pk=2#.Va-uzvlVhHw
