The Power of Moringa - Winner of the finals in the Spacelab 2021 Contest – AMIT Yeshiva, Tzfat

The AMIT Tzfat School as part of the Ramon Foundation’s SpaceLab Program with Dr. Shai Bel's Lab, Faculty of Medicine Bar-Ilan University

The experiment examines the feasibility of using Moringa seeds powder (which absorbs the contaminants) and pieces of copper (which act as a bactericide) to purify water in the spacecraft. This is a simple, cost-effective way of purifying water instead of the currently-used methods. If we are successful in purifying water using the Moringa seeds and the copper, we will be able to apply this method to long-term space missions and for use in the Space Station. We will also be able to improve water purification in developing countries. Plus, if we succeed in growing the plant in the Space Station and perhaps even on Mars, we will on the one hand be gaining a “superfood”, while on the other hand we will be able to use its seeds for water purification.

“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.
