The first step to interplanetary travel is being able to grow food during the trip. Richard speaks with an advisor to the Canadian Space Agency who updates us on the research, and tells us how it can also help farming here on Earth. Then, UFO encounters with expert Nick Redfern.
Episode Segments:
The Conspiracy Show: Mars Colony
Richard welcomes Michael Dixon, a Professor and Advisor to the Canadian Space Agency. In the challenge to get to Mars or beyond, we will need to be able to grow food in space. The space travel environment poses numerous problems such as, microgravity, limited water, artificial light sources and many more. Research at the Controlled Environment Systems Research Facility at the University of Guelph is showing us how to grow food in space and, in the process, is developing beneficial technologies for earth-bound farming.
