Grow Plants In Space, Rejuvenate Your Skin On Earth?

Crazy title I know, but bear with me for a moment... Interestingly, the power of LED light energy was first discovered by NASA during the space race in the 1960s. Astronauts needed a way to grow plants without sunlight. Armed only with a little soil, water and LED lights, they grew plants in space. No sunlight or gravity required! This lead NASA to explore how they could put the incredible power of LED lights to use back home.
