Happy Independence Day, America! 🇺🇸 With red, white and blue LED lights to mark the occasion, the Advanced Plant Habitat is one subtle way our astronauts can celebrate the holiday aboard the orbiting laboratory.
So far, this recent addition to the International Space Station (@ISS) has been used to grow and study Arabidopsis, small flowering plants related to cabbage and mustard, and Dwarf Wheat.
Because gravity is a constant downward force on Earth, researchers take advantage of the microgravity environment of the space station to achieve a clearer perspective of plant growth habits. Gravity is one of the major cues plants use to guide their growth, but microgravity can act as a kind of mute button that suppresses the role of gravity, enabling researchers to see what other cues take charge. A monitoring system equipped with 180 sensors, including water usage, carbon dioxide levels, light levels, temperature, humidity and oxygen in the growth chamber, and temperature, humidity and oxygen levels in the plant root systems, allows us to constantly analyze how plants grow in space.

@farmingthcbd

I thought this was a led grow room lol

@malgowilliams

Great colours!

@tom_aku

cancer cure??

@juli_monsa03

Corre el pubg a 16K? 240 hz?

@shaffer.miles08

What you got there a dance party nasa I thought

@a3999998

Это TARS курильщика? 😉

@patlackey13

Dm to trade

@pinie1

@pinie1 you're **

@pinie1

@pinie1 ohh lol blocked again, guess @odell22685 couldn't handle the truth

@odell22685

@pinie1 gravity has never been proven as a force I’d do a little research before spouting off

@pinie1

@odell22685 your the one denying facts. Water conforms to the force acting upon it, in this instance it's gravity. Please learn some basic physics first instead of being ignorant 😂 *block incoming*

@odell22685

@pinie1 no your just boring and aren’t going to listen water always finds flat it can’t physically curve don’t even try and say yes it can because it can’t

@pinie1

@odell22685 you've clearly never studied maths, otherwise you'd know that Pythagoras' theorem becomes highly inaccurate over large distances. You have no valid/ true emiracle evidence to support your claim. You'll probably end up blocking me again because you can't handle the truth or people challenging your false beliefs.

@pinie1

@odell22685 water conforms to the force acting upon it, in this case gravity. That calculation uses Pythagoras' theorem which becomes extremely inaccurate with large distances hence is an inaccurate measure.there are plenty of photos from high altitude flights such as concord of the curvature and plenty by the iss nasa and esa. Try learning some basic physics. Nice try at blocking me so I couldn't respond, pathetic. Can you not handle people proving you wrong?

@lewisp_private

@motokitten same haha, it's happened to me countless of times

@asshole.hassan

ووووواااااووو

@jslr_00125

@motokitten Say what you want

@momuca66

Muy interesante la investigación de las plantas en micro gravedad

@ouj_zibaei

واقعا خوشحالم چندروزی میشه با پیج شما آشنا شدم واقعا پست های خوبی می زارید 😊😊😊😊☺️😃 لطفا به پیج ما هم سر بزنید

@nguyenthevinh88

Đề nghị cơ quan Nasa giữ kín bí mật chính trị , để tránh ảnh hưởng đến giá vàng và Usd , tôi nghĩ phần nhiều do tội phạm đánh cắp thông tin

@motokitten

@lewisp_private that flat tard blocked me. LOL

@avish.chowdhury

You are using hydroponics.

@betin_mr

Great shot!!

@motokitten

@jslr_00125 we say America. LOL

@jslr_00125

@motokitten ir does nota seeme easier say usa

@odell22685

@lewisp_private water doesn’t curve into the shape of a ball for starters the measurement of the curve is 8 inches per mile of distance squared I thought you’d know that now go look at some long distance photography and use that measurement and you’ll find that you shouldn’t be able to see what’s in front of you as it should be hidden behind the curve

@lewisp_private

@odell22685 you've still not present any facts for the earth being flat.
