This project is a test rig to monitor and record plant respiration rates under varying conditions. Light, temperature, nutrients, gas mix, and pressure can be adjusted to chart the effects on the plant and it's ability to convert CO2 to oxygen. The goal of the experiment this device enables is to create a parametric database of plants and their ability to provide oxygen under various conditions. This dataset will be pivotal in the deployment of agriculture in colonies on other worlds, and has much to contribute to terrestrial agriculture as well.
