For years NASA attempted to grow edible plants in a spacelike atmosphere.
Failure after failure until a 10 YO astronaut's son told him plants will not grow, and seeds will not germinate, in ZG. (they use gravity to determine which direction to root, sprouting in the opposite direction)
He learned this in his 5th grade science class.
NASA fired their team of botanists that overlooked this important fact.
