LHS-1E is our Lunar Simulant for Educators 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!
