NewsELA article, by Dan Collyns explains how NASA wants potatoes on mars. The article talks about problems and solutions for building potatoes on Mars. One main idea is we can grow potatoes on Mars. Julio Valdiva- silva, astrobiologist, says that it is possible to grow potatoes on Mars. Another main idea is that it will be hard to grow potatoes on mars due to bad temperatures, less gravity, little oxygen, no water, strong winds. One last main idea is that potatoes could be a staple in space. Potatoes could grow underground, and potatoes might be able to grow faster than any other food. I choose summaries 1, 2 , and 3 because I thought they were the most interesting to me and might be interesting to others. I choose to pick summary number 1(NASA is hoping for potatoes to take root on Mars) because there were facts I didn’t know that NASA was doing and facts that I already knew about like how potatoes grow underground. Another example is that I didn’t know is that NASA was trying to grow potatoes on Mars.
