Project Type IQP Submission date 2007-10-15 Authors Robert Leo Groezinger, MIS Benjamin E Moody, MA Christopher J Songer, CS URN E-project-101507-102551 Division Social Studies of Science and Technology Title Sustaining Agriculture on the Moon Advisor Wilkes, John M., SS Availability unrestricted
Mankind cannot go into space by itself. Plants and animals that are part of a sustainable biosphere will have to go with us. The key to developing a colony on the Moon, or anywhere else, will be the question of how it can feed itself. Tuber (Yam and Potato) agriculture on the Moon is not just a matter of finding water and building a greenhouse. First you have to create soil, then you have to go at least 10 meters underground to avoid cosmic rays, and still you need solar energy.
