It is natural for people to get vegetables from their local market, these products are fresher compared to the ones on the frozen section of the supermarket. However, what if a massive catastrophic event happens that may ruin all the crops in the world and it might be impossible for people to plant anything? Well, that is one of the major reasons why the EDEN-ISS is trying their best to actually produce real food such as vegetables within an indoor farm.

Indoor Greenhouse In Antarctica
Technically, nobody could actually move to Antarctica and live there aside from animals that are meant to survive the cold climate, only scientists go and stay there for like a year to do their research and some other tourists. It is not like any continent that has cities and other industrial buildings, which makes it impossible for a human being to stay there for the rest of their lives.
However, this doesn’t necessarily mean that it is impossible to produce food in Antarctica, in fact, they have managed to plant a few crops without the help of the earth, daylight or any kind of pesticide. This is actually a part of the project that scientists have been working on to be able to help astronauts have their own fresh procedure while they are out of the world.
