I thought this was a cool little tidbit...I wonder if the scientists on earth will find even a tiny difference between the space grown stuff and the exact same earth grown stuff
I also thought it was very clever of them to use red, green, blue LED lights to grow the veggies-very low energy cost for that kind of light
...it was also interesting to note that they actually only need the blue and red light to make them grow well....I wonder why?
