Crops in Space

NASA recently released details on the fifth crop, cabbage, grown in the international space station.

After spending nearly a month tending to the International Space Station’s first crop of Chinese cabbage, astronaut Peggy Whitson harvested the leafy greens on Feb. 17, 2017. While the space station crew will get to eat some of the cabbage, the rest is being saved for study back at Kennedy Space Center.

This is the fifth crop grown aboard the station, and the first Chinese cabbage. Exciting news indeed 😀
