Could Cryptothecia Striata, an elusive Lichen found deep in the Floridian landscape, solve NASA's radiation crisis? With Mars set as this century's moon landings, unavoidable cosmic radiation threatens to prevent NASA's long-term aspirations for the red planet.

SILL begins to form the provisional outpost in the heart of the Everglades; an anti-radiation therapy centre for astronaut's waiting to explore the untouched depths of the universe.
