Space: Hi-tech garden to grow vegetables on the Moon and Poles

A hi-tech garden to grow micro-vegetables on the moon and in extreme environments like the poles, set up inside a special “igloo greenhouse” designed to withstand very low temperatures. But also simulated space missions thanks to advanced immersive virtual reality techniques. It’s the challenge of V-GELM (Virtual Greenhouse Experimental Lunar Module), an experimental project aimed at developing a lunar cultivation module by combining innovative hydroponic cultivation techniques with virtual experiments to ameliorate the life of astronauts in future long-term missions.
