What it is
Plant Researchers from Wageningen UR have grown a ripe tomato on soil which has the same composition similar to that of Mars. This concerns a cherry tomato with a diameter of 2 centimeters.
Why it is Cool
New forms are discovered in future farming. We can learn a lot about climates and the influence of terraforming . We learn to understand and manage the biosphere on earth. Besides that, if we can grow a cherry tomato, what else can be grown in the future on Mars?
Why it has Future Growth Potential
We can create places where the human race can move effortlessly. It is convenient as our current planet is too full, too dirty, too hot or when a natural disaster has made the planet unlivable.
