We are a student team that will grow lettuce on Mars AUA!
We're a student team planning to grow life on Mars. We've designed a greenhouse that could go to Mars and grow lettuce. We've submitted our proposal to Mars One as part of their competition for a spot on their lander in 2018, and if we win, we'll get to do this.
Having passed the technical round, the final round is a popularity contest. Votes are collected from Facebook, G+ and Twitter as only the most popular project will fly in 2018. More information on our project and on how to vote is on our website: www.lettuceonmars.com
We're up for questions on our proposal or general discussion on space colonisation, which we think is really cool.
We're not Mars One or acting on their behalf in any way.
The whole team will be passing through here today so we'll try and make sure that the best person answers the question, though we're a small team so we all did a bit of everything.
