Space spices / Potted plant

Space spices
Space spices

Most of the food in space is ready-to-eat, and for convenience, most of them are freeze-dried foods that cause poor taste. While performing tasks in space, the fluid in the body fills up the upper limbs because of the absence of gravity, which causes a dull sense of taste and smell. At the same time, Nasa has already begun to try to cultivate plants in space. We designed this personal plant incubator, Space Spices, so that they can cultivate their own fresh and healthy food without adding much content to their mission. The different taste and freshness stimulate appetite, and you can also find comfort from caring for plants outside of work.
