- The P0004-1 'Seeds in Space' experiment consisted of six sealed aluminum canisters which contained tomato seeds and a variety of other seeds for the study of space radiation effects on the seeds. The seeds were contained in cloth bags. Interspersed among the bags of seeds were ten dosimeter packets to monitor the accumulated ionizing radiation exposure of the seeds. In addition to the ten flight dosimeter packets, four ground control packets and one ground movement packet were also included as part of the experiment. The P0004-1 experiment was mounted on the F2 tray, near the trailing edge of the LDEF orbiter. The results indicate that the neutron fluences were higher in the P0004 canisters than in that of P0006. The difference was much greater for thermal neutrons than resonance neutrons. This is consistent with shielding.
