Podcast: growing crops with nitrogen in space

In this podcast, Luke Fountain joins Emma the Space Gardener to talk about the different ways plants use nitrogen. Luke is investigating two different processes in the nitrogen cycle, and his work could help us to grow crops more sustainably on Earth, and have applications in space. Luke is also part of the team working on the SpaCEA Space Foam Crop Growth Challenge, which will turn everyday citizens into Earth-bound astrobotanists.
