The HortExtreme project was the protagonist in February 2018, in Oman, of a mission to supply the involved astronauts with fresh micro-vegetables. The multilevel hydroponic cultivation system, fully automated and equipped with LED lights and inside an inflatable structure, has made it possible to obtain fresh, healthy and high nutritional quality food. These new forms of horticulture will increasingly fit into the space and urban environment to solve problems such as the reduced availability of resources and space for cultivation.
