Recycle waste into food

A group of researchers from Clemson University in South Carolina, called Blenner Research Group, is working to answer the challenge. With the funding from NASA as much as US. $200,000, the group conducting the study of synthetic biology to recycle waste into food, supplement biologically active and useful material.
The $200,000 a year grant has been approved for a maximum of three years and the project is being led by Mark Blenner of Clemson University, South Carolina. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1JrioGd)
The program is called "Closing the Loop for Long-Term Space Travel". The study was conducted in conjunction with vegetable planting project in a non-gravity and project a 3D printer that pizza makers alike is a solution to the problem of food supplies during the flight to Mars.
Using human waste to aid in food production on board spacecraft could be essential for long interplanetary journeys. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1KWsPlh)
As mentioned in the press conference, the study will serve to provide a place of manufacture of food, medical supplies and construction materials during long-distance space travel.

NASA is not just doing the research field. The agency also finance the blue-green bacteria use for the development of lightweight materials, dynamics and control the manipulation of space, the construction of solar power battery-the whole thing needed for an expedition to Mars. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TECHIENEWS]
