August 16, 2022 – TheNewswire - Redwire (RDW), a leader in space infrastructure for the next generation space economy, has announced that it will develop the first commercially owned and operated spaceflight-qualified plant growth platform, which will be capable of growing plants from seed to maturity entirely in space. Redwire Greenhouse, which is scheduled to launch to space in 2023, will be the first-ever commercially owned greenhouse installed on the International Space Station.
The Redwire Greenhouse will provide a simple, scalable commercial solution to advance crop science from benchtop laboratory facilities to true production in space. During the inaugural flight, Dewey Scientific will grow industrial hemp in the greenhouse for a gene expression study.
Dave Reed, Redwire Florida Launch Site Operations Director and Greenhouse project manager commented: “Redwire Greenhouse will expand opportunities for scientific discovery to improve crop production on Earth and enable critical research for crop production in space to benefit future long-duration human spaceflight. Growing full crops in space will be critical to future space exploration missions as plants provide food, oxygen and water reclamation.”
Redwire is a leader in space infrastructure for the next generation space economy. With decades of flight heritage combined with the agile and innovative culture of a commercial space platform, the company is uniquely positioned to assist customers in solving the complex challenges of future space missions.
