Museum of Science and Industry


It may seem a little science fiction-esque, but growing crops in a nutrient-rich goo might just be the thing for farmers in rough terrains. Discovery News reports on some industrial design students in the Netherlands who have put forward this idea to protect food from damage by pests, sandstorms, etc. This could help feed a lot of people in locations where it's difficult to grow crops, like the desert. Oddly enough, this concept could be used in space, too!

How do you feel about this? More importantly, do you think the Moon will overtake the state of Washington as the new apple capital of the world(s)?
