About the Event

(Click Event Website to register) Atalo Holdings is providing certified seed and agronomic support for a research effort by Space Tango to study hemp and its constituents in microgravity aboard the International Space Station. Research will look for possible enhancements of the cultivar for food, fiber and medicine for use on earth and perhaps on extraterrestrial bodies. This webinar will explain the project. Launch is currently scheduled for Tuesday April 30 at 4:22am aboard SpaceX CRS-17 from Cape Canaveral. The launch and later the docking and installation of the various payloads can be viewed on NASA-TV https://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/schedule.html
