The State Duma commented on the plans of “Roscosmos” to grow plants in orbit

Deputy Kashin called the idea of ​​Roscosmos CEO to grow plants in orbit as foolish corporation “Roscosmos” Dmitry Rogozin to grow plants in orbit foolishness. His words are quoted by the radio station “Moscow speaking.” He noted that they should be addressed. “That film is being shot in space, now we’ll come up with one more nonsense. Let's take and use what lies under our feet, what is at hand, “- Kashin commented on the plans of Roscosmos.
