NASA`s space vegetable project to soon provide lettuce to astronauts
Washington: NASA will launch the Vegetable Production System aboard SpaceX`s Dragon capsule on Monday.
The plant growth chamber is going to grow lettuce inside prototype flight pillows, which will help the plants withstand zero gravity, the Verge reported.
According to NASA, red, blue, and green LEDs will help sustain the vegetables, asserting that the plant chamber can grow to 11.5 inches wide and 14.5 inches deep.
The project has now raised hopes that the chamber will eventually be used to grow a wider variety of vegetables, and even be used for recreational gardening.
