Project Summary

The project aims to design and develop Microgravity Specific ENvironment Simulating Equipment (g-SENSE). The purpose of g-SENSE is to simulate the specific environmental conditions observed during plant cultivation in space greenhouses in laboratory conditions on Earth.

In g-SENSE the complex of weightlessness-specific stresses will be reproduced under scrutinised control to study plant growth, development and reproduction during many experiments.
