These inflatable farm pods are straight outta Surviving Mars


Interstellar Lab’s Biopod looks like something out of Surviving Mars. It’s a climate and oxygen-controlled inflatable dome capable of housing plant life, making it what they call a “super-advanced autonomous greenhouse.”

In an interview with Wired (opens in new tab), CEO of Interstellar Lab (opens in new tab), Barbara Belvisi, says the whole point of the Biopod is to “create the perfect climatic and atmospheric conditions for life” to combat food scarcity, whether that’s here on Earth or on places where there’s no food at all, like the Moon.
