Nourish: Growing lettuce on the ISS

The first food news I'm going to share for this month's Nourish theme comes from Science at NASA: ScienceCasts: Lettuce Orbit Earth -- A New Form of Life Takes Root on the ISS.

A new life form is taking root on the International Space Station, and its name is "Outregeous." The space-faring lettuce was delivered to the space station by a SpaceX Dragon capsule on April 20th.
Here's to the astronauts and cosmonauts on the ISS eating local for the first time in the history of space exploration.
