Scientists in Antarctica have harvested their first crop of vegetables grown without earth, daylight or pesticides as part of a project designed to help astronauts cultivate fresh food on other planets.

作為旨在幫助宇航員在其他星球上培育新鮮食物的項目的一部分,南極科學家們已經首次收獲了他們的不含土,日光或殺蟲劑的蔬菜。

Researchers at Germany’s Neumayer Station III say they’ve picked 3.6 kilograms (8 pounds) of salad greens, 18 cucumbers and 70 radishes grown inside a high-tech greenhouse as temperatures outside dropped below -20 degrees Celsius (-4 Fahrenheit).

德國Neumayer Station III的研究人員表示,由于外界氣溫低于零下20攝氏度(-4華氏度),他們已經在高科技溫室內種植了3.6公斤(8磅)沙拉青菜,18棵黃瓜和70棵蘿卜。

The German Aerospace Center DLR, which coordinates the project, said Thursday that by May scientists hope to harvest 4-5 kilograms of fruit and vegetables a week.

While NASA has successfully grown greens on the International Space Station, DLR’s Daniel Schubert says the Antarctic project aims to produce a wider range of vegetables that might one day be grown on Mars or the Moon.

雖然美國國家航空航天局已成功在國際空間站種植綠色植物,但德國農業研究中心的丹尼爾舒伯特說,南極項目的目標是生產種類更多的蔬菜,有一天可能會在火星或月球上種植。
