Royal Horticultural Society Rocket Science Project – Growing Space Seeds!
On the 2nd of September 2015, the Royal Horticultural Society ‘Rocket Science’ seeds were successfully launched into space. The seeds departed from Baikonur, Kazakhstan and after several months on board the International Space Station with astronauts including Commander Kelly and Major Tim Peake, the seeds successfully landed back in the Pacific Ocean with the Soyuz crew.
Next, they were packaged up with identical seeds that have stayed on earth and shipped to participating schools to grow and compare. Pupils have numerous fun and inspiring activities to look forward to!
