Space Terroir

In this project, I built an embedded system to measure various environmental characteristics during the fermentation of miso in outer space. I built two systems (one redundant for ground troubleshooting) that were equipped with a visible camera, light sensors, Geiger counter, temperature sensors, and air quality (CO2 & VOC) sensors. The device was loaded with miso samples and sent to the International Space Station for 30-days where it was sending back samples of data to Earth every few days.
