Will an inflatable greenhouse be the solution to grow food on Mars?

NASA scientists designed an inflatable cylinder greenhouse that could help astronauts grow food when arriving at other planets. Astronauts have successfully grown vegetables and plants aboard the International Space Station, but with the newest project, NASA expects to develop long-term methods to help sustain astronauts working in deep space.

The project is being developed by NASA scientists at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and researchers from the University of Arizona.

The inflatable prototype greenhouse will allow astronauts to grow crops and plants in outer space

The prototype consists of an inflatable, deployable greenhouse designed to support plant and crop production. Such production will support astronauts’ nutrition and will help with the air revitalization, waste recycling, and water recycling. The process is known as a bioregenerative life support system.
