Members of the 44th expedition to the International Space Station are planning to eat lettuce grown in orbit.
Astronauts and astronauts have been experimenting with plants onboard the ISS since 2002, when the Lada greenhouse appeared at the station, but until recently, these experiments were carried out exclusively for scientific purposes. Now, vegetables grown in a special container Veggie have been tested on Earth - the experts gave permission for the astronauts to eat them. The red romaine lettuce in question was planted in a nutritional pillow of a Veggie container on July 8 and is now ready for use.
