At 04:26am on Tuesday 2nd March, Commander Scott Kelly of NASA and Russian cosmonauts Mikhail Kornienko and Sergey Volkov of Roscosmos landed safely back on Earth in Kazakhstan. The seeds then travelled with Scott Kelly to NASA in Houston on a charter flight from Moscow, Russia and returned to the UK on Thursday. We are now getting ready to pack them up so they can be sent to you with your Rocket Science experiment pack in April!
Our seeds will arrive on Tue 12th or Wed 13th April so that we can sow them on 19th or 20th April.
From the date of sowing, measurements will need to be taken on days 10, 17, 21, 28 and 35. We will need follow all instructions very carefully as this is a scientific experiment that we have developed with real scientists and is therefore very detailed.
