Les nombreux cratères sur la lune et sur d’autres corps célestes de notre système solaire sont les témoins d’un passé violent. Bien que la terre soit protégée – jusqu’à un certain point – par son atmosphère, il n’est pas impensable qu’un astéroïde s’écrase un jour à la surface de notre planète. Avec d’autres, l’ESA s’est attelée à cette question épineuse. L’émission "Matière grise" de la RTBF y consacre prochainement l’un de ses numéros.

Looking for food that could be harvested by astronauts far from Earth, researchers focused on spirulina, which has been harvested for food in South America and Africa for centuries. ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti ate the first food containing spirulina in space and now the knowledge is being applied to a pilot project in Congo as a food supplement.

Preparing for long missions far from Earth, astronauts will need to harvest their own food. ESA’s Micro-Ecological Life Support System Alternative team, or MELiSSA, is looking at creating a closed ecosystem that continuously recycles waste into food, oxygen and water.
