Biopod on the Moon
At the Future Investment Initiative in Riyad last year, Interstellar Lab unveiled the BioPod: the first inflatable environmentally- controlled plant cultivation pod. Working as a stand- alone system using advanced crop cultivation technology, the BioPod provides unprecedented solutions for local, regenerative, and efficient agriculture on Earth. It fosters biodiversity, turns CO into O , closes the water loop,
2 2 and reduces land need by a factor of 100. In 3 years, Interstellar Lab is also planning on adapting the BioPod for lunar applications, more specifically in the context of NASA Artemis program, which will bring humans back to the Moon by 2024. The first BioPod is currently being built in Paris.
