NASA Wants You To Help Astronauts Grow Space Food

NASA wants to make sure its astronauts are well-fed – and they need your help.

The agency has launched the Deep Space Food Challenge, a competition seeking ideas to help grow sustainable food in space – with over $500,000 in prize money is up for grabs.

Previous NASA challenges included last year’s ‘Lunar Loo Challenge’ where the public helped come up with ideas for a high-tech toilet for the International Space Station.

Do you think humans will ever travel to Mars or beyond? Could you endure being stuck on a spaceship for months at a time?
