The food was cooked in space for the first time in history. Tacos, a Mexican food, is made from chili grown at the space center itself. NASA revealed this on Friday.
Plant Habitat – 04
The small spacecraft experiment at the International Space Station was named Plant Habitat-04. The U.S. space agency has revealed that the pepper was planted there as part of this. Such an experiment is part of finding the pulse of life.
Chilli seedlings were planted four months ago. A few chillies harvested in space were also brought to Earth. However, NASA says this is the first time such a harvest has been carried out in space.
NASA’s study of the plant and the resulting chilies was carried out at the space station. As part of that, experts are studying taste, appearance and nutrition.
