Paolo Nespoli, unfortunately has had to terminate his education experiment Greenhouse in Space due to the fact he noticed some fungus growing beside one of the plants. In this video, he takes great care to explain exactly what has happened and shows us all the procedures that are necessary on the ISS to maintain a safe environment. Although Paolo managed to grow some healthy plants in one of his greenhouses, no risks can be taken.
Paolo encourages all the children participating in the Greenhouse experiment to carry on trying to grow Arabidopsis from seed to seed as this is important for the future of long duration and distance space travel.
