Help grow lettuce on Mars

Help grow lettuce on Mars
LettuceOnMars

The Red Planet could be getting a little greener in the future. In 2018, the MarsOne Lander will head for Mars and you get to help decide what it'll be carrying. There's a competition going on right now to see what'll take up some of the space on the Lander - and lettuce is one of the ten finalists.

Well, it's more than just lettuce. The #LettuceOnMars proposed payload includes an entire growth chamber that will try and grow lettuce seeds on Mars using carbon dioxide from the planet's atmosphere and some water from Earth.

A technical review round trimmed down the applicant list from 35 to 10. Now, the 10 finalists have to garner support on social media to win the contest.
