What key technologies and research are needed, and what has been done to date, to enable long term settlement food production, waste cycling, and details. This session will focus on the overlooked details glossed over in studies, efforts, and books to date.

    > Overview (5 minutes moderator, 5 mins per panelist): What is you work to date, what is your focus regarding space agriculture?

    > Core question to panel members (each panelist answers in 10 minutes, discussion round follows for 15 mins): Given $100 million, what would you do to make a fully functioning recycling farm a reality?  What exact details still need to be refined and are overlooked now that you would pursue?
