Plants are an important part of any human space habitat. They give us food, and they make us feel good. But what do plants need to be able to thrive off-Earth? How can we grow enough food for astronauts living in space, on the Moon, or even on Mars? In Operation: Plants in Space, it’s up to you to design the solution!

Our department recognises the First Peoples of this Nation and their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to the lands, waters, seas, skies, and communities.

We Acknowledge First Nations Peoples as the Traditional Custodians and Lore Keepers of the oldest living culture and pay respects to their Elders past and present. We extend that respect to all First Nations Peoples.
