NASA’s fruit and veg is out of this world

NASA has developed a plant growth chamber dubbed “Veggie” and sent it into orbit, with the first-ever space-grown fruit and veg set to be harvested today on the International Space Station, meaning astronauts will be sampling fresh food grown in space for the very first time. Astronauts will be allowed to eat half of the space harvest. The rest is to be packaged, frozen and returned to Earth for analysis.
