Take part in humanity’s return to the Moon and become an Astrobiologist by growing plants in lunar regolith simulant!
This kit comes with much of what you will need to begin a plant growth experiment within our Lunar regolith simulant. Perfect for both performing your own experiments or educating students on the scientific process.
We have included optional educational curriculum that you can access here
Included in Kit: -2kg of Educational Lunar Highlands Simulant (LHS-1E) -0.3kg of basalt pebbles -9 plant growth cups (4 inch) -Astrobiology poster -Education curriculum with answer key -Exolith stickers
Additional Materials Needed: -organic soil or other growth medium -Seeds
LHS-1E is our educational Lunar Highlands Simulant that is more affordable due to a simplified mixture of minerals. The only change to this simulant is the absence of trace minerals: Ilmenite, Pyroxene, and Olivine. This simulant is over 99% identical to our LHS-1 simulant.
We would love to hear about any results! At the end of the experiment email us at email@example.com and we will add you to our plant growth database. Ad Astra!
