A Salad Grown In Space

    History is made, yet again, aboard the International Space Station in the form of a salad.

    FOX News Radio’s Eben Brown reports from Miami:

    You’d think these astronauts never got any fresh food….

    (Astronauts) ”Cheers! Cheers! Cheers!// That’s awesome. // Tastes good. // Yeah, I like it. // Kinda like arugula.”

    And normally, they don’t. But the crew of the International Space Station has been conducting an experiment to see if they could grow red romaine lettuce up in space. Turns out they can. And that’s good news for Scott Kelly, in the midst of a year-long stay in orbit.

    (Kelly) ”If we’re ever gonna go to Mars someday, and we will, but whenever that is we’re gonna have to have a spacecraft that is much more self-sustainable with regards to its food supply.”
