The race is on for a solution to the threat to the world food crops due to climate change, depletion of minerals and nutrients in soil throughout the world and new, aggressive and resistant plant diseases before it’s too late. Many of the food crops we rely on, the banana among them, are under serious threat of being wiped out completely. ZGSI, along with its academic and corporate partners, are pioneering new solutions utilizing ISS-enabled, non-GMO stem cells.
Space.com’s interview with Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. CEO & President, Richard Godwin, explains how breeding stem cells in the micro/zero gravity environment of low earth orbit (ISS) can provide solutions to food crops and alternative energy problems.

Modern society takes many things for granted. Food, for instance, appears on the shelves of our stores, keeping them fully stocked. Runs on Walmart stores due to a computer glitch or interruptions by major storms aside, we expect the food we eat to both be there the next day, the next week, and the next month, and be sustainable as well.
But what if it's not sustainable? What if today's food production can't keep up with global population growth?
Mechanized farming has carried society into this century regarding food production. Today, GPS spatial-technology and big data analytics are now optimizing farming even further, but with genetically engineered crops and the overuse of fertilizers and chemicals to fight pests and disease there has been a backlash.
Yet none of the above tools represent a quantum leap in food production. Outbreaks of disease sprout up periodically, while farming runoff has created oxygen-depleted dead zones around coastal deltas, and over-farming has stripped nutrients out of the soil.
For generations, we have dreamed about a place to live and work in space...a space station. And right now, 260 miles above us, moving 5 miles a second...that dream is a reality. We dreamed that life up there would benefit life down here. That dream has come true.
Can the research on board the space station lead to cleaner drinking water on Earth? Can it help farmers produce better crops? Can it inspire a generation of students? Can it even save a life?
It already has. As the work aboard the International Space Station begins to reach its potential, the benefits to humanity are becoming evident. These are just a few of the stories from people who have benefitted....told in their own words.
