From school lab into space: Three agricultural students from Ravensburg in Germany are aiming to use their project, "Vegetative Propagation Ability of Plants in Orbit", or "V3PO" for short, to discover how plant cuttings and their roots behave in zero gravity. A NASA rocket, scheduled to be launched in February, will transport the cuttings to the International Space Station (ISS). But who exactly is behind the intriguingly-named V3PO project? Click on the photograph below to get to know the people behind of one of the most exciting agricultural research projects that BASF has ever been involved with.
