Mars Habitation Project - Part 1 - Failing to grow plants

From the abyss of the deep space, down to the nucleus of a human skin cell.
SpaceChain will take you on a journey you will never forget.
After almost 6 months trying to grow agricultural products in synthetic Martian soil, we failed to grow anything.
That’s why we go deep into the microscopic world of living cells, watching what happens when a living organism is exposed to the toxic soil that covers the red planet.
Join #BITNATION Space Agency and SpaceChain to discover new worlds, in the first interactive and decentralized science division on the planet.
Suggestions and ideas are more than welcome.

We have changed our Bitcoin-address because of security reasons, as it has turned out that someone or some people has been imposing as me and representative of Bitnation Space Agency / SpaceChain.org in order to commit fraud.
To prevent it from happening again, we've created a custom Bitcoin-address.
The new address is: 1iman7NGDTYkBQVj9bUmDQPPRZtgBwZ9A
It starts with 1 and then the name of SpaceChain owner Iman Mirbioki, following nr 7 which is his favourite luck number.
This will guarantee that any funds sent to us, will go to the right account.

Please feel free to donate any sum you feel comfortable with to help funding the worlds first and only decentralized space agency, SpaceChain and #BITNATION Space Agency.

Providing you with DIY-space exploration since 2013 and ranked number 3 in the world after giants as SpaceX and Copenhagen Suborbital (Ref: links in our blog at www.spacechain.org) as a serious actor in the space/aerospace community.

Unlike other space agencies, all ...

Mars Habitation Project - Part 1

Welcome to planet Mars!
Or at least a piece of it.
The soil turns red very fast, in less than a minute (pictures 2 and 3) when exposed to the Earths oxygen-rich atmosphere.
We don't take any chances, when working with home brew extraterrestrial soil - so I'm all wrapped up in protective gears. (Picture 4)
--------
Update Jan. 2018: 5 months into the experiment, we've still failed to grow anything in the "Martian" soil. Even live plants dies within hrs or a couple of days.

Our next step is to dig deeper into the mystery, using a special microscope to observe live cells being exposed to the synthetic Martian soil. (The microscope is on its way to our lab and is expected to arrive next week from UK.)

By understanding how the chemicals affects living organisms at cellular level, we might find a solution for future expeditions to the red planet, to grow ...
