Growing Beyond Earth Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden N/A Coral Gables, Florida Growing Beyond Earth 3000-12-31 Fairchild’s Growing Beyond Earth project provides South Florida middle and high school students an opportunity to conduct authentic botanical research in their classroom. This citizen science project provides opportunities to participate in plant experiments to schools registered for The Fairchild Challenge. Students will research which edible plants might be suitable for growth in microgravity aboard the International Space Station’s plant growth facility. The purposes of the experiments are to expand food options and increase plant diversity, by testing multiple edible plants for future space missions. Using equipment that mimics the “Veggie” system aboard the International Space Station, students are testing factors that may influence plant growth, flavor, and nutrition. Scientists at Kennedy Space Center will use students’ data to determine which plants should undergo further investigation.

Growing Beyond Earth Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden N/A Coral Gables, Florida Growing Beyond Earth 3000-12-31 Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in partnership with  the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on  Growing Beyond Earth The goal of the project is to assist NASA scientists in testing edible plant variety options for growth on the International Space Station's Veggie and the Advanced Plant Habitat system by providing middle and high school students with the opportunity to actively contribute to this authentic research. In May of 2015, Fairchild began a partnership with Kennedy Space Center (KCS) to help further NASA’s plant-based research by calling upon the Garden's large network of highly-engaged, STEM-minded, students and teachers. Most were already participating in ongoing citizen science projects through the award-winning Fairchild Challenge program. Together with NASA scientists, we engineered and installed plant growth chambers analogous to the Vegetable Production System (Veggie) in classrooms throughout South Florida — leveraging an army of nearly 50,000 middle and high school students and teachers in the nation’s fourth largest school district. Growing Beyond Earth (GBE) was designed to expand crop options and increase plant diversity by testing multiple plants that meet NASA’s criteria for growth and edibility.  Over the past two years, students have been testing factors that may influence plant growth, flavor and nutrition. NASA will use students’ data to determine which plants are selected for further testing and will be potentially grown in space. Through the NASA-partnered GBE project, students have tested over 100 varieties of edible plants for germination rates, growth habits and edible biomass production. After confirming that our experimental growth chamber produced similar results to the International Space Station (ISS) Vegetable Production System (Veggie), students helped NASA choose the "cut and come again" procedure to use on the ISS as a method to continuously provide fresh produce. GBE is unique in its focus on real scientific research relevance to NASA mission planning, as fresh produce will be an important part of the astronaut diet on long duration missions beyond Earth orbit.

America Kopernik Observatory & Science Center 10-11-2019 Vestal, New York America's Return to Spaceflight/ Date changed to Fall 2019 10-11-2019 America’s Return to Flight! – Presented by Tish Bresee, NASA Solar System Ambassador. April 11th, SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket successfully launched the Arabsat-6A satellite from Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The payload included Cubesats along with an exciting “Green Propellant” and a precise Atomic Clock that can run 9 million years before losing one second of time. Wow! That was cool. This Fall, (2019) Space X will fly again with a crew of two Americans onboard the Dragon crew capsule- Colonel Doug Hurley (Owego Free Academy graduate) and Colonel Bob Behnken (Maryland Heights, Missouri). Come to Kopernik to dream with us as American Tech sends Americans out there into Space again.
