Astronauts to eat space vegetables
On Tuesday astronauts on board the ISS space station will for the first time taste lettuce grown in space.

Some leaves of red romaine lettuce grown in the weightless condition aboard the space station is on the menu, announces the US space agency NASA.

The vegetarian meal has been approved by the NASA administration after laboratory tests confirmed that the vegetables are safe to eat.

Being able to grow food in space is an important milestone for NASA.

If humans in the future are to venture into new, time consuming manned spaceflight way beyond Earth's orbit, being able to grow food is extremely important.

The goal for many is that man at some point in the future will be able to travel to, and perhaps even colonize the planet Mars, for a start.

Then growth stations for vegetables would be an important part of the colonization.
