Here is how kids imagine the AstroNematode gets around

Nema the AstroNematode flys to space on a grubship by Amber age 9. Then Nema lands on the International space station on a Grublander which will be used later on landing on Mars mission by Kurt age 13. Nema will have babies so Nema needs a baby carrier, called Baby Grub Car, by Amber, age 9.  Nema needs the next generation (faster flying) rockets to go to Mars. The name is Hyper-Grub Ship by Kurt, Age 13. If you have stories, please send us your picture stories for the Nema the Astronematode.

Astronematode will be at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit

Dr. Kaplan will also talk about AstroNematode project at the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit on March 19 in San Francisco. Please come and join me.     Visit and ask us at the Tech HUB about our new exciting experiment “First Ever Agriculture Biocontrol in Space” at International Space Station (ISS) US National Laboratory. This experiment has immediate earth applications and contributes to Pheronym’s ongoing product development Nematsim as well as collaborative efforts with the USDA to improve beneficial nematodes’ effectiveness.
