It all started with the salad, the first product of Veggie" vegetable garden which is on the International Space Station. Now is the turn of flowers, more complex to grow, but that will bloom at last in 2016.It is not just a matter of impossible challenges, but of science, because the cultivation of vegetables and plants in space is a means to study how to make the microgravity and generally create a vegetation out from the earth.The flowers chosen are zinnias, which like the salad, will be treated with LED light, water and nutrients. The next step? Tomatoes.Photo from the Flickr profile of NASA."
