1 Testable Question: If Brassica Rapa plants are grown in a microgravity environment, will it affect the amount of fruit produced, the height of the stems, the amount of leaves, the angle of the stem, and the root hairs? Hypothesis: The plants affected by the independent variable will have a greater amount of fruit, the plants will be taller, the amount of leaves will increase, the angle of the stem will decrease, and increase the amount of root hairs Microgravity Travis Hendershot Josh Denmeade

2 Experiment Number 1 For this experiment: Plants grew in a horizontal system Plants grew in a horizontal system Grown in Film Can Grown in Film Can Grown for 6-7 days Grown for 6-7 days Dependent Variable(s): Root Hairs (Amount) Root Hairs (Amount) Direction of Root Growth Direction of Root Growth Microgravity

3 Experiment Number 2 For this experiment: Plants grew in a vertical system Plants grew in a vertical system Plants grew in bottle growing system Plants grew in bottle growing system Plants grew for 37 days Plants grew for 37 days Dependent Variable(s) Height, Angle of Stem, Amount of fruit, Amount of Leaves Height, Angle of Stem, Amount of fruit, Amount of Leaves Microgravity

4 This graph shows that the height of the plants in micro-gravity was shorter than that of the control plants. This means the was shorter than that of the control plants. This means the plants did not grow as well in micro-gravity. plants did not grow as well in micro-gravity.

5 This graph shows that the stem angles of the plants in micro-gravity were less than the angles of the control plants. This was probably were less than the angles of the control plants. This was probably due to disorientation of the plant due to disorientation of the plant

6 This graph shows that the amount of leaves of the plants were relatively the same. This shows that despite the fact that some of the plants may have been impaired, they still went through their life cycle.

7 This graph shows that the control was successfully going through the process of reproduction while the microgravitys did not.

8 Results-1st n Root hairs grew to changing sense of gravity grew to changing sense of gravity n Direction of Roots grew to changing sense of gravity grew to changing sense of gravity Control Microgravity

9 Results-2nd rHeight didnt grow as welldidnt grow as well rLeaves able to go through lifecycleable to go through lifecycle rAngle of Stem plants curved to gravityplants curved to gravity rSize of fruit wasnt able to reproduce as wellwasnt able to reproduce as well Control Microgravity

10 Conclusion qComplete life cycle q2nd generation may not develop
