A Rosehearty youth organisation have been given seeds grown in space so they can take part in a national science experiment.

Rosehearty Brownies have been given 100 seeds that were grown in space aboard the International Space Centre by famous astronaut Tim Peake.

The girls have also been given another 100 seeds that have stayed on Earth - but the group have no idea which set of 100 is which.

They will now grow the seeds, carefully recording the differences in the plants and recording the data which becomes part of a nationwide Rocket Science experiment.

Jenna McRobbie, who helps run Rosehearty Brownies, said: “The girls are very excited.

“I basically just over see it but the girls do all the testing and watering.”

The girls were given a red and a blue pack of seeds and a bit of guessing has already taken place as to which one might be the space seeds.

Ms McRobbie said: “At the moment we it’s going to be the red one because we’ve had a more germination in that one.”
