Living in Space

Dr. Nigel Packham, a Lockheed-Martin life support systems scientist, appears almost lost among the 30,000 wheat plants that produced oxygen for him during a 15-day regenerative life support systems test at the Johnson Space Center. Live plants will be important to any future manned space exploration because they generate oxygen and take in carbon dioxide.
