Hydroponics Gardening in Space

NASA is investigating the use of hydroponics for application to extended space and inter-planetary missions. Hydroponics will allow astronauts to grow their own food, which will increase the efficiency of missions, and reduce the number of supply deliveries that need to be made. The plant varieties and nutrient combinations they develop will assist all hydroponic gardeners with higher-producing crops that require minimal light and electrical energy.
