It goes without saying that there is no force of gravity. This time NASA, the American space research organization, started rooting in that space. The International Space Station (ISS), an artificial satellite that has been orbiting the earth for a long time, has succeeded in this amazing test.
Scientists are working day and night to achieve the goal of removing human settlements from the earth to the moon and Mars. For him, the astronauts spend months in space, leaving their families behind. There they have been trying to cultivate in space for a long time so that they can get the necessary vitamins and minerals.
It has been successful in so many days through root cultivation. NASA has released a picture of a tree sprouting from plant Habitat-2 in ISS’s Columbus Laboratory module. In it, a green box with 20 green leave has seen in the middle of various wires in a square-shaped box.
Scientists have also argued in favor of why there is so much variety of crops. They said that it does not take much time to cultivate. Radish could chew raw. Again, its nutritional value is more. So it has decided to cultivate in space. And after a few days the roots will be dug up. His sample has sent to Earth for testing.

However, scientists said that radish cultivation in space has not an easy task at all. There was no way for the roots to enter the soil as there was no force of gravity. So first a ‘pillow’ has made of soil and seeds are buried in it. From it the seedlings grew. In this method all the trees get equal water and fertilizer.
Studies have shown that trees respond best to blue and red light. Like that, the box has LED lighting system. There are more than 160 sensors installed. Scientists are monitoring plant growth from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. They also monitor water, fertilizer and temperature adjustments as needed.
