In addition to crops, Tiangong two will also carry out what scientific experiments – new network soulseek

In addition to crops, "Tiangong two" will also carry out what scientific experiments? The original title: space crops? The "Tiangong two" will carry out scientific test (some data from China center "Academy of space application engineering and Technology Lab on" jiuxiao magnificent temple) rocket simulation map.

Mars, rely on the cultivation of potatoes for food, presence of Mars in more than and 500 days…… This only appeared in the sci-fi movie classic plot, is now gradually into the vision of reality. 15, the successful launch of the "Tiangong two" space laboratory will be carried out more than ten scientific experiments. One of them is "growing crops in space."". "Temple No. two, sample recovery astronauts will participate in higher plants." Chinese manned space engineering general designer Zhou Jianping said in an interview, the astronauts in space will be mainly rice, Arabidopsis and other plants, in order to detect the space microgravity effects on the activities of life, and lay a foundation for the protection of life ecosystem based on the plant, in order to achieve the long-term goal in the future space station set up the planting base.

Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shanghai Institute of plant physiology and Ecology Institute of advanced plant expert Zheng Huiqiong said that Arabidopsis and rice are two representative, a typical regulated by photoperiod. "At present, the development and gene expression of Arabidopsis thaliana is very clear, if the changes in the process of spatial growth, it is easy to identify. Rice is the main food source for the Chinese people, and it is expected to be extended to the space life in the future." Planting crops in space is not the same as in the earth, life on earth is evolved in the gravity environment of 1G, microgravity environment will be a big challenge for space planting. After the station plant on the Mir space culture test, although the plant can survive, but can’t live healthy. High plant incubator (photo: Chinese Academy of Sciences) long time in space microgravity environment, astronauts will occur in space syndrome." Zhao Guangheng, chief engineer of the Chinese Academy of space application system, said the purpose of the experiment is to study how plants grow in a healthy environment. We hope that through the experiment, in the future to allow astronauts to stay in space for a long period of time, there can be food to eat, eat, do not need all from the ground supply." Growing plants in space is far more difficult than it should be. In the case of limited payload, "Tiangong two" should not only meet the basic needs of astronauts to survive, but also to meet the requirements of plant growth. So, like space food, the soil and water needed for space plants should also be "private". According to higher plants incubator design expert Zhang Tao introduction, this experiment is using vermiculite as soil, laying in a rectangular box, put in the seed. "This is not a simple box, there are many functions, breathable, waterproof, prevent microbes, water can be recycled through the device相关的主题文章:
