Abstract

Prior to the establishment of the space habitats of the future, the life science program office of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is interested in the development of a ground-based manned demonstration of the closed ecological life support system (CELSS). Since CELSS concept centers around complete recycling of all available resources, a genetic plant design to render the total plant more useful is very important. Previous studies (Phillips , 1977; Phillips et al., 1978) conducted for NASA clearly indicate the usefulness of soybean-Plants in such a system.
