The purpose of this session is to brainstorm about all the possible ways how cyanobacteria can help surviving in space. It was shown that cyanobacteria can survive in space for at least 2 years . Also, always have in mind the scheme below, which describes what cyanobacteria need to produce oxygen!

Additional questions for brainstorming:
how can we collect the produced oxygen more efficiently?
how can we store the cyanobacteria or the oxygen long-term?
can we somehow upcycle the produced oxygen to form the sustainable microenvironment?
can we somehow genetically modify cyanobacteria to produce more oxygen with less resources?
