The crew onboard relished some tacos, because of the chilli peppers that they harvested on the station. McArthur tweeted, “Friday Feasting. After the harvest, we bought to style purple and inexperienced chile. Then we stuffed out surveys (bought to have the information). Lastly, I made my greatest area tacos but: fajita beef, rehydrated tomatoes and artichokes, and hatch chile.”

Wow that appears yummy. Oh please you have to make a cooking/assembling video, I imply how do you do this in microgravity? How do you even chop chilli with out bits floating away? (I am imagining cries of ache as slightly little bit of chilli floats away and lands in anyone’s eye! ????)

This consumer (@VickyFr76545922) wasn’t content material with pepper farms on the station. For him, “chillies are usually not sufficient.” He advised, in a cheeky means, that the ISS also needs to plan a poultry farm. “Simply take two-three Broiler eggs and open your poultry farm within the bulbs, chickens will come out after which chickens will change into hens after which hens will give extra eggs.”
So Megan, when you’re opening poultries farm in area, within the bulbs ? Simply take two three Broiler eggs and open your poultry farm within the bulbs , chickens will come out after which chickens will change into hens after which hens will give extra eggs. Very good thought, chillies are usually not sufficient.⛪????
