NASA scientist and astronauts have been experimenting with algae in space. Two specimens recently spent 16 months on the exterior of the International Space Station and became the first plants to make it through these conditions.

The researchers are exploring the genetic basis for the productivity of algae cultivated in space and whether this requires genetic adaptations. Algae may perceive microgravity as an abiotic stress, for example, which can trigger production of high value compounds.
