USED SCIENCE HARDWARE:
- Folding rocket (3)
- Plant growth chamber inserts (6)
- Mini-DV videotapes (2)
- 30 ml syringe with water
- ZIP-lock bags (3)
- Silica gel bag
- Filter paper with ordinary rocket lettuce (Rucola)
- SUIT return pouch
to return videotapes and part of the seeds not
used in the experiment.
CREW SUPPORT EQUIPMENT:
Show that plants respond to gravity by a directed
growth (experiments on ground) and that they will
show a non-preferential or 'disoriented' growth direction
when grown in the dark in microgravity.
Demonstrate the influence of gravity on the growth
of plants to young people (10 -15 years).
Information on the process of seeds growth in microgravity
recorded on videotapes.
