To celebrate the launch of my new ebook, Jade Pearls and Alien Eyeballs, in this episode I’m talking about plants that have been launched into space, and some of the research that is being done to make a manned mission to Mars possible. There’s even a mention of a garden on the moon, and a reading from a futuristic section of the book (which is about unusual edible plants and the people who grow them). We have taken plants to every continent on Earth, and now into space – or have they simply used us to expand their reach?
