Chinese Astronauts ‘to Attempt to Grow Vegetables on Mars’

Quote:
Chinese astronauts are preparing to grow vegetables in space, with both Mars and the Moon named as potential outer space allotment sites.

Researchers have successfully completed preliminary tests in the Chinese capital of Beijing, according to official state media reports.

The ‘ecological life support system’ will allow astronauts to develop their own stocks of air, water and food while on space missions.

Astronauts will be able to grow vegetables ‘in extra-terrestrial bases on the Moon or Mars’, Xinhua news agency said this week.

They will also be able to ‘harvest fresh vegetables for meals’, said a researcher at Beijing’s Chinese Astronaut Research and Training Centre.

Earlier this year, China became only the third nation in history to successfully complete a manned space docking , with the country’s first ever female astronaut taking part in the mission.

Ambitious China remains on course to become the first nation to build a manned space station by 2020, while the country also has ambitions of sending a man to the Moon.

Re: Chinese Astronauts ‘to Attempt to Grow Vegetables on Mars’

So artichokes, Cauliflowers and Fava beans not only Made in China™ but even grown and harvested under mysterious environmental conditions? Who will test them? Only al-Qaeda would be able to provide the volunteers, tsk! "The asparagus from the outer space", sounds like the title of a science fiction book for kids

Sounds cool, but how long until it actually happens?

There is plenty of land mass in China to grow cucumbers.

Somehow...I don't trust the Communist Chinese.
