Start of the Seeds in Space experiment on 22 April 2004. Via an inflight call, Dutch ESA astronaut André Kuipers joins a class at De Klaverweide school in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. Dutch Minister for Education, Culture and Science, Maria van der Hoeven also attended the event in Noordwijk.
Over 70 000 schoolchildren simulataneously started the experiment by planting their seeds in the rocket-shaped kit. After four days they will compare the growth of their seeds with those of André Kuipers' in space.
