Coming to the space world, Prasanna Krishnamoorthy from Delaware and Rajan Vivek of Arizona are among NASA’s 10 Space Contest finalists of 3-D Space Container Challenge. The challenge to the students was to design models of containers in a way that they could help astronauts keep things in order in space.
Hydroponic Plant Box container by Rajan was designed to tackle the challenge of containing water in an environment of microgravity, while plants grow roots in it. According to NASA, Hydroponics would be effective in space crafts because of its less space requirement and faster as well as stronger plant growth. Prasanna developed a Collapsible Container with a capacity to expand and compress in a way to fit its contents. It was designed in such a way that it can totally compress so easy to store.
