The Rocket Science project is allowing up to 10,000 schools the chance to grow the seeds, which were sent into orbit on the International Space Station along with British astronaut Tim Peake this month.

When the seeds return to Earth, schools will plant them alongside normal rocket seeds to see how gravity affects seeds and impacts on their growth.
