CE2 and CM1 pupils have planted 100 rocket seeds that have been on the International Space Station for 6 months ans 100 that were stored on Earth. For 7 weeks the children will observe and record the growth of the rocket plants to see if there is any difference between the seeds that were kept in microgravity and the ones that remained on Earth.
After the data has been collected, the results will be analysed by professional statisticians. Leading scientists from the Royal Horticultural Society and the UK Space Agency will interpret the results and draw possible conclusions about the potential for astronauts to grow their own food to sustain them on long-term missions.
