Experiment Description:

This experiment, which is closely related to the Seeds in Space Experiment (P0004-01), offered students the opportunity to evaluate the survivability of seeds stored in the space environment and to determine possible mutants and changes in the mutation rate which may occur. The Space Expose Experiment Developed for Students (SEEDS), a cooperative project between NASA Headquarters, NASA Langley Research Center and the Park Seed Company of Greenwood, South Carolina was developed to generate interest in science and to provide students with experimental opportunities using materials flown in space. LDEF carried 12.5 million Rutger's tomato seeds in this experiment.
