This lunch seminar we welcome the Astroagronomist Tor, as he speaks on some of the many the challenges of developing an independent food production on the Moon and how it may in fact also be applied anywhere on Earth where food production may otherwise prove difficult.

There is a reinvigoration of human space travel, and humankind is on the precipice of a new transformative era. The current roadmaps of international space agencies aim to establish a constant human presence on the moon before the end of the decade, and eventually go to Mars. However, missions to the Moon and Mars come with a myriad of challenges. Even though we may have the technology to bring humans to the Moon and Mars, we do not have the required food systems or the food technology to sustain them.

Ultimately food is a limiting factor for future lunar habitats.

See you there!
