PaCMAN Inauguration

PaCMAN Inauguration

Throwback to the inauguration of the first laboratory in Europe at the Department of Agricultural and Food Science, PaCMAN, entirely dedicated to the characterization of plants for regenerative systems to support life in Space.

The Higher Plant Compartment is one of the most complex compartments of the MELiSSA loop and requires dedicated research infrastructures in order to study, characterize and mathematically model the plant development and crop production. This unique facility was conceived as an environmentally controlled and leak-proof system for scientific studies on various crops.

Thank you to the Department of Agricultural and Food Sciences - University of Naples Federico II for making this day a success !
