NASA astronauts on the International Space Station are taking the idea of farm-to-table to new heights—literally. The team has just harvested their “Outredgeous” red romaine lettuce that’s been growing in space as part of the plant experiment called Veg-01. While the astronauts will consume half of the produce, the other half will be frozen and sent back to Earth for analysis. More than just a space salad, this experiment is essential as humans travel further and further into space.
