The C3 Take
  • Space greenhouses, which are used in missions to the moon and Mars, might soon be used on Earth to grow food in hot regions.
  • Nanoracks, a space services company, is developing one of these space greenhouses in the UAE, with plans to open in 2022.
  • If successful, this technology could provide a pathway to reducing food scarcity across the globe.
  • Innovative technologies, not government mandates, are producing durable climate solutions.

“In yet another example of space technologies providing great benefit here on Earth, space services company Nanoracks says the solar greenhouses it originally designed for missions to the moon and Mars may soon be deployed in deserts here on Earth as well as in orbit around our planet.”
