As we pursue dreams of space exploration, our species will continue to sustain our livelihood by cultivating plants. Our human heritage can continue in the stars; we will work as gardeners.

Welcome to astrobotany.com, a site that explores the discipline of botany concerned with interactions between plant biology and space environments.

The goal of this website is to be a resource for those interested in spaceflight plant biology as well as terrestrial plant biology.

Let’s grow plants in space.
