Astronauts Actually Grew And Ate Veggies In Outer Space [WATCH]

Being an astronaut in outer space means it’s almost impossible to access to a farmers market. So if you want to get your fresh produce, you’ve gotta grow it yourself, apparently. That’s what Japanese astronaut Kimiya Yui, NASA’s Kjell Lindgren and Scott Kelly did, as the space crew safely consumed the space-grown food.

They spend a year in the International Space Station and harvested their own red romaine lettuce.

Sunday, Lindgren and Kelly posted photos of the lettuce as they ate half of the crop, while the other half will come back to Earth to be studied.

Check out the space produce below:
