OUR LAUNCH PARTY VIDEO
THE OFFICIAL STUFF
Watch the launch of CRS-29 @SpaceX #rocket carrying several samples of our blue oyster mushroom culture to the #iss (International Space Station) for zero gravity growth testing. It will then be brought back to be compared to cloned sister cultures that were raised on Earth.
Everyone is so impressed with the whole team's creativity, tireless diligence, and consistent energy, all the way up to and including the planning of a virtually viewing opportunity, which we pulled together literally in one day! Wednesday (as in two days ago - one day before launch)
The Dragon spacecraft is scheduled to dock Saturday, Nov. 11, around 5am. Once the items are unloaded, the students will receive directions as to when to conduct their experiment here on earth; they will follow the same timeline and procedure as the astronauts in space, providing a comparison between earth's gravity and microgravity on the process of mushroom growth.
