Here at astrobotany.com we strive to provide resources for researchers and the public for free.  The TOAST database, the plants and spaceflight information, the news section: they are all services we aim to provide.  We want all scientists to have the opportunity to access our information.

Recently the FCC announced that they are planning on ending rules on net neutrality.  This move would allow Internet Service Providers to choose internet speeds for select websites or companies.  This move would put thousands of small businesses at risk and stifle competition.  It could affect how you or other scientists reach our genetic databases.

Please join us in standing against this decision. 

Let’s grow plants in space. – Kai
