Space tacos!

Astronauts at the International Space Station recently had, what they called “the best space tacos yet”. Astronauts usually eat packaged food. But recent experiments onboard the station allowed them to start growing their own vegetables: last year, it led to the first space-grown lettuce. Chillies, which are a more difficult crop have started sprouting in the station’s garden, thus providing a delicious addition to the tacos. This is proof that more complex vegetables can be grown outside of the earth’s atmosphere, which may help secure food supplies for future longer trips – to Mars, for example, as reaching the planet could last up to 3 years!
