David Kusma will be our presenter for the August 15, 2019 Brown Bag Virtual Luncheon - Tupperware in Space. Tupperware’s partnership with NASA is developing an advanced plant growing system for zero gravity. Version 1.0 was launched to ISS in 2018, version 2.0 launched earlier this year, and 3.0 is expected to launch beginning of next year. If you would like to follow the project you can go directly to the NASA website: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/tupperware-takes-to-space-to-help-improve-astronaut-diets.
Pack a lunch and join us virtually. The presentation will be 30 mins and we can use the last 15 to 30 min to round table review what’s new in IDSA Florida and talk future events.
