Hyperspectral imagery is not limited to long-term space voyages; there are examples here on🌎 Since the late 1990s, the ARS Instrumentation and Sensing Lab, pioneered a benchtop line-scan system for hyperspectral imaging of food and ag products.go.usa.gov/xe4dQx#AgInSpacee7
There have been decades of research collaborations between ARS & NASA, such as light spectral effects on crops in the late 80s, optimizing plant productivity in 1991 & food safety research w/ hydroponic crops in the mid-90s, to name a few. More➡️go.usa.gov/xexZS #AgInSpace
