Tupperware containers to help improve astronauts' diet in space 31.3.2018 General News
Tupperware, a manufacturer of household plasticware, is now helping NASA improve astronauts' diet by providing fresh food in space. Since 2015, NASA astronauts have supplemented their space diet with fresh greens grown in the Vegetable Production System known as Veggie on the International Space Station (ISS). One of the challenges with growing plants in space in Veggie has been keeping them properly watered. The Tupperware Brands Corporation has lent its design expertise to help develop a new approach to watering plants in space, NASA said in a statement. With the Veggie system, astronauts have to push water into each plant pillow with a syringe. In previous crops grown in the Veggie system using pillows, some plants fared better than others because not all the plants received equal amounts of water and oxygen. "The primary goal of this newly developed plant growing system, the Passive Orbital Nutrient Delivery System, or PONDS, is to achieve uniform plant growth," said Nicole ...

Air pollution in most cities of Karnataka is beyond the permissible limit, reveals the Greenpeace Indias recent report, and experts blame the callousness of the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) for this. According to the report, Tumakuru had the highest annual PM10 values in 2016 in the state.
