The Martian Agriculture eXperiment (MAX) will help understand practical requirements for plant growth at a closely simulated Martian environment in space. By engineering an artificial gravity instrument, and generating the first Israeli Martian regolith simulant, this experiment brings us closer to Martian agriculture than ever before. With decades of research experience and data shared by past and ongoing experiments and teams, we are focusing on successful plant growth, supporting future astronaut missions to Mars. The space experiment will be validated by student teams on Earth (Brenner regional high-school premises) at the closest feasible setup, and accompanied by educational staff, IAI engineers and Israeli physicists, geologists from BGU and GSI and plant scientists from HUJI.

“Above us only sky” Ilan Ramon, RIP, 2003

The Rakia Mission is an example of the extraordinary collaboration between a great number of different entities. It is an expression of the values of peace, innovation, leadership and social responsibility. The combination of dreams this mission represents, and the proof that anything is possible - these are a major part of our vision.
