Abstract

The Prototype BLSS Lunar Greenhouse currently in operation at the University of Arizona - Controlled Environment Agriculture Center in Tucson, Arizona is an Advanced Life Support technology demonstration for supporting a sustained human presence at the future lunar science outpost. The focus of the investigation is to demonstrate water recycling, air revitalization, and food production using NASA targeted crops within a semi-closed system utilizing a scaled prototype lunar greenhouse design.
