Lift Off At Last!

Do you remember the catastrophic attempt to send our seeds into space? Well if you want to jog your memory and watch the video take a look here.

Well this time, I want to report some good news!

On 2 September our rocket seeds were successfully launched into space, bound for their new home aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

The seeds departed from Baikonur, Kazakhstan on Soyuz 44S – the flight that is delivering European Space Agency astronaut Andreas Mogensen and his crew to the ISS.

The rocket will dock tomorrow morning and the astronauts will unload the seeds and transfer them safely on board. They will remain on the ISS for several months and return to Earth with astronaut Scott Kelly, currently planned for March 2016.

We are all so excited and the children cannot wait to see the results of our lunar blooms in March.
