Keywords:Microgravity, Tomato

I have been studying the effects of gravity in order to provide food for people living in extraterrestrial environments. I investigated the growth of tomatoes under pseudo-microgravity generated by my self-made 3D-clinostat. The distribution of main components in tomatoes under pseudo-microgravity was different from that of tomatoes grown under the ground. Here, I will discuss those results together with other results.
