The next set of tomato seeds for Tomatosphere, a joint program with First the Seed Foundation and Let’s Talk Science, are one of more than 15 payloads on-board SpaceX’s 21st commercial resupply mission (CRS-21).

The Tomatosphere program uses the excitement of space exploration to teach the skills and processes of scientific experimentation and inquiry. Students investigate the effects of the space environment on the growth of food that will inevitably support long-term human space travel.
