NASA has created an alien herb vegetation on the International Space Station. Astronaut Steve Swanson exhibited the extraterrestrial agriculture testing on Operation Veg-01, taking the term high to another dimension. Hydroponic farming systems have pushed zero gravity scientists into a propulsion of new discovery for agriculture. Veg 01’s research program has been underway since March of 2014, and is ending in September 2015. NASA’s goal is to study many different aspects of plant life in outer space, in hopes of having a clear scientific understanding of what humans will need when traveling the vast distances.
Unending questions of how alien greenery and vegetative herbs might respond in an environment when breaching boundaries into alien atmospheres that are not fully understood, due to a lack of knowledge NASA demanded agricultural answers giving them experimental access to project Veg-01. In order to comprehend and grasp a basic understanding of the unknown, starry-eyed colleagues and researchers affirm the only way possible for this to take place is to observe and record an actual occurrence of such things. The word experiment was derived from 14th century Latin, experientia, meaning to test or try it, using intelligent observations and repeated trials for gain of knowledge. NASA concluded that selecting to experiment on Operation Veg-01 was more than necessary, since documentation had not yet been discovered about agriculture in the deep void.
Earth is pushing boundaries of human space exploration in many different regards, and society in the 21st Century is filled with space consumerism. Present society’s interest in science and technology has the consumer world reaching for the stars. Humanity’s peaked curiosity in space and willingness to give up life on a carbon based planet is at an all-time high.
Hollywood has provided science fiction and space admirers with an array of movies, preparing the next generation for what is to come. Exploratory Matt Damon plays the lead role in The Martian, being released in November 2015, leaving all Ancient Aliens fans waiting with anticipation. NASA fans cannot wait to hear the plans formed by the International Space Exploration Coordination Group (ISE) for the future of humans and the need for space exploration as a planet, giving skeptics validation for other worldly ideas.
A stellar benefit to being scientifically active in the space scene is that NASA has had the opportunity to study alien herb life and the zero gravity cause and effects, by creating a vegetative alien ecosystem. Bending the rules bound to earth by gravitational forces helps researchers study how indoor hydroponics will support plant life when traversing vast distances. The world of education is now transforming into a full-fledged upward progression, with the stratospheric horizon being no obstacle for mankind anymore.
As NASA has created high deep space hydroponics, the investigation and the correlation between zesty alien herbs and certain plant vegetation can reach optimal abundance of life, while proliferate speculations have been formed from conspiracy theorists and star lovers. The much-needed increase of oxygen on board, as well the urgency for human life to thrive, has created an experimental carbon-oxygen based platform to study and improve the cognitive work place in space. Fans filled with wonder applaud NASA for taking such a dynamic step in history, uniting agricultural and science, taking the world to realms space explorers have never been before.
