MELiSSA project For long duration missions, either on the Moon or further away in deep space (on board a spaceship or on the surface of Mars), it would make much more sense to grow at least part of your food supply by recycling waste materials. In addition, plants also recycle CO2 and produce oxygen. Continuously resupplying the Moon or Mars, or hauling a huge amount of supplies in your spaceship, is simply not sustainable. Moreover, if we really want to move from scientific bases to actual colonies, we'll badly need experience in running such regenerative life support systems.

Here's some links on the MELiSSA project

Goodbye Christopher Columbus. Kraft, Jr., feb 28th 1924 who died July 22, 2019 at the ripe old age of 95, created the concept of NASA's Mission Control and developed its organization, operational procedures and culture, then made it a critical element of the success of the nation's human spaceflight programs.

“America has truly lost a national treasure today with the passing of one of NASA’s earliest pioneers" NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine "We send our deepest condolences to the Kraft family.Chris Kraft married his high school sweetheart, Betty Anne Turnbull, in 1950. They have a son and a daughter, Gordon and Kristi-Anne.

For Kraft, the power that the flight director held over every aspect of the mission extended to his control over the actions of the astronauts. In his 1965 interview with Time, he stated:the guy on the ground ultimately controls the mission. There's no question about that in my mind or in the astronauts' minds. They are going to do what he says.

Goodbye Rutger Hauer
