Description

These seeds were sent to space aboard the Space Shuttle “Challenger” in 1984 as part of NASA’s Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF) project. LDEF carried many experiments from different disciplines, among them ParkSeed’s tomato seeds, in order to study the effects of deep space. They remained in space for five years, until the “Columbia” Shuttle Mission STS-32 returned the seeds to Earth.
