Parabolic Flight Testing of Aeroponic Plant Growth Systems and Super Omniphobic Surface Coatings

Abstract: The purpose of this project is to gain valuable data from three separate experiments. One being an aeroponics watering system, another being a PONDS passive watering system, and the last a super omniphobic surface coating apparatus.There are two aeroponics watering systems that feed water and nutrients to “plant roots” inside of a contained box. The walls inside of the contained boxes have different surface textures and shapes but each contain the same nozzle and compressor set up as a contro…
