Sounds Like An Expensive Salad: Astronauts Eat The First Lettuce Grown In Space (And Didn't Die Or Mutate)

August 11, 2015


Astronauts aboard the International Space Station just tried the first produce grown in space yesterday after eating the red romaine lettuce they grew as part of the Veg-01 experiment. No word if they also produced ranch dressing, but you're not gonna catch me eating some plain-ass lettuce. Come on, holler at me with some zesty Italian -- anything.

Nasa's ultimate aim with the experiment is to find sustainable ways for astronauts to augment traditional rations on board long-distance space missions. The research has already yielded practical results beyond the obvious, including a variety of LED lighting and air purification products.

You know what I would grow if I was in space? "Weed?" Yes! Just kidding, I would grow human hair. "But WHY would you grow human hair?" To make space wigs! It's going to look like where all the Cabbage Patch Kids are born except with a bunch of adult heads and no bodies.

Keep going for a video of the monumental occasion and speculate whether, "That's awesome," is the proper response to eating a piece of lettuce.

    Geekologie, why do you keep ignoring my links to exposing this ISS HOAX that I keep sending to you? Anyone with a BRAIN can see that the ISS is a f**king JOKE LIE and pathetic SHILLS like yourself are more worried about keeping your unfunny hipster blog going than actually revealing the TRUE SCIENCE and REALITY that is before the eyes of ANYONE willing to see. Anyone and EVERYONE reading this, look up on that tube site with videos "ISS NASA HOAX" and see how the women have their hair permed, film the "space walks" underwater, and film the supposed "GLOBE" with a fish eye lens on a go pro camera. Go ahead.... LOOK. The greatest deception of ALL is being revealed....... WAKE UP. Look at the works of MARK SARGENT, ERIC DUBAY and JERANISM......... This is a GREAT awakening.........

  • Let me know when they grow a cow and make hamburgers in space. Then I'll be sold.

    I guess they already have rats for experiments so a ratburger would be feasible. Just like in that movie with Stallone.
