The experiment, which confirms the brand’s ‘Grow With Certainty’ promise, was conducted by NASA astronaut Jeff Williams on the International Space Station earlier this month.
It was conceived by secondary school students as part of the International Space School Education Trust’s (ISSET) Mission Discovery programme. The programme enables ordinary secondary school pupils to carry out research with NASA Astronauts, rocket scientists and trainers.
Daniel Reid, Daniel Sullivan, Joseph Lynch and Jenna Leigh Morris all took part in ISSET’s programme at the King’s College, London.
Julie Keeble, Lecturer in Pharmacology at the college, said: “It is incredible to see how much Gro-Sure Fast Acting Lawn Seed has grown aboard the space stations, considering how difficult it is to grow any form of plant within a micro-gravity environment. Julie added: “The student’s experiment and has been a great success and we’d like to thank everyone who made it possible.”
