CosmoAquaponics

The CosmoAquaponics (CAP) System is a printable fusion hydroponics and aquaponics system intended for use in microgravity environments, specifically Mars. The system has a plant cap intended to start and sustain seeds. The cap features a prism that can maintain the mesh with watering holes at a specified angle and two holes. One hole is above the mesh and outputs water from a pump that runs on electricity gained from the kinetic energy of the water exiting the pump below the top of the mesh. The water system cap has inputs for an O2 probe and pump, a CO2 probe, and the beforementioned water pump. It is intended to be printed with PFTE for its beneficial gas exchange.
