Where it all started.

More than 99% of all visible matter in the Universe is in the plasma state. However, there are practically no usable natural plasmas in our biosphere. A milestone was in 1997: back then, Cold Plasma was produced in a controlled manner for the first time in space. And because it was already becoming apparent back then that it would be possible to develop useful and effective applications with Cold Plasma, the company terraplasma emerged – and scientists became managers.
