The Mars Greenhouse project is part of the Advanced Life Support system for the mission to Mars.  The Mars Dome Project (MDP) is designed to grow plants in an enclosed structure under reduced pressure. This system includes a dome enclosure, an environmental control system, a plant growth system, data logging system, and an external vacuum vessel. Each of these systems are integrated by the use of a solid-state control device located inside the base of the Atmospheric Tower Management System (ATMS).
