Space Seeds ($39.95)


Product Description

Northern Spring has arrived, and that means it’s time to plant your garden–your SPACE garden, that is. On March 26th, the students of Earth to Sky Calculus flew a payload-full of tomato and sunflower seeds to the edge of space. En route to the stratosphere, the packets experienced temperatures as low as -63 C and cosmic ray dose rates 100 times Earth-normal.
What will these far-out seeds yield? Find out for yourself! For only $39.95 we will send you a packet of space seeds along with control samples that remained on the ground during the flight. Plant them side by side for a backyard science experiment. Each shipment comes with a card telling the story of the flight and certifying that the seeds have been to the stratosphere and back again.
Please specify your seed preference (Beefsteak tomato, cherry tomato, or sunflower) in the comments box at checkout.
