EDEN ISS greenhouse, designed for perpetual ice

The DLR fa­cil­i­ty will be sit­u­at­ed rough­ly 300 me­tres from the Neu­may­er Sta­tion III op­er­at­ed by the Al­fred We­gen­er In­sti­tute. It will be used to cul­ti­vate cu­cum­ber, let­tuce, toma­toes and oth­er plants. DLR en­gi­neers are us­ing the EDEN ISS project to re­search the con­di­tions un­der which small num­bers of veg­etable plants will de­liv­er the high­est yield.

The DLR facility will be situated roughly 300 metres from the Neumayer Station III operated by the Alfred Wegener Institute. It will be used to cultivate cucumber, lettuce, tomatoes and other plants. DLR engineers are using the EDEN ISS project to research the conditions under which small numbers of vegetable plants will deliver the highest yield.
