Could this psychedelic contraption help astronauts grow fresh food on the ISS for the FIRST TIME EVER? Called the Vegetable Production System (or VEGGIE), this apparatus was sent up to the ISS on April 14th, and will allow astronauts to grow mostly greens like lettuce, radish, bok choy, and even some leafy greens. Not only will it provide the crew with yummy fresh food, but will also make them feel a little bit closer to home in space.via SPLOID, NASA
