For the first time, the scientific community on space agriculture research is preparing a White Paper. This shall describe the different benefits and challenges of space agriculture for future space endeavors, but also for the benefits of Earth’s citizens, to maintain perspective of the position of the researchers, educators, aerospace and related industry relative to the stakeholders. The White Paper shall be used as general statement towards decision makers on national level (e.g. DLR, NASA), and on international level (ESA, EU).
