Winter progress – our plan


Welcome to our site! We are a small team from the Tampere University of Applied Sciences, we are taking part in the Epic Challenge- program by NASA 🙂

So what do we do?

-We are designing an autonomous system for growing Arthrospira Platensis- Cyanobacteria to be used as a food source for future astronauts

-Right now we are starting to experiment different growing conditions in our laboratory to optimize the food production.

-In the coming months we will construct a prototype of the bioreactor itself

We are growing our testing culture in a regular plastic container
