Have you ever wondered if you could really grow plants on Mars? You’ve seen the movie, now come see the science behind The Martian, with Kyle Grant. His project specialises in the design of bacteria and plants that can colonise and survive in Martian and Lunar settings. In collaboration with NASA, the project hopes to one day provide crop plants and engineered bacterial counterparts for the support of astronauts on space missions.
